Whiplash is typically a soft tissue injury to the neck, shoulders or back, caused by the rapid acceleration or deceleration of the neck and head as the result of a collision. This movement can be quite violent, depending on the cause of the accident and, as a result, whiplash injuries can vary greatly in severity, from a slight pain to disability and the need for surgery.
Some symptoms of whiplash include:
- Pain in the neck, shoulders and arms
- Memory loss
- Problems concentrating
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
It is estimated that some form of whiplash injury occurs to car passengers in 20% of road accidents and quite frequently whiplash injuries are caused by low impact collisions with speeds of only a few miles per hour.
