Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head; either backward, forward, or sideways. This movement causes significant damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back.
Many whiplash sufferers feel their injuries do not require professional treatment. In severe cases, this lack of initial treatment can result in serious complications, which develop into permanent injuries.
Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, approximately half of them proclaim to still suffer with symptoms from these car accident injuries. It’s important that you seek professional help after being involved in a traffic accident to prevent long term repercussions.
