Whiplash is classified as a cervical acceleration/deceleration (CAD) injury, involving a “whipping” motion of the neck caused by a sudden movement. This stretches the muscles beyond their normal range, causing strains, tears, and sometimes fractured vertebrae from the sharp motion. In particularly serious cases, brain damage and internal hemorrhaging can result, along with damage to the anterior neck muscles.
A number of symptoms can indicate a CAD injury, including:
Whiplash usually results from rear-end and head-on collisions, though it is possible that it can occur from a side-impact crash. Surprisingly, whiplash can occur in accidents at speeds as slow as 25 miles per hour. Higher speeds and harder impacts will result in more serious damage. If you have been involved in a car accident, it is imperative that you seek medical attention as soon as possible for a complete evaluation of your condition.
