Signs of a Whiplash Injury

See health disclaimer.

sign_of_whiplash_inj_1.jpg

Whiplash is a real danger that can have lifelong health complications if gone untreated.

The term "whiplash" does not refer to a specific kind of injury, but rather the cause of a wide range of neck pain.

Drivers and passengers, in Lakewood, involved in rear-impact auto collisions are most at risk for receiving whiplash, since the impact thrusts the body forward while the head stays in place. This violent movement causes extreme and abnormal flexing in the tendons of the neck, creating a whip-like motion that can result in injuries like hyperextension/hyperflexion, myofascial syndrome, sprains, and/or strains.

Whiplash from auto accidents and other neck injuries in and around Lakewood most commonly occur from:

  • Car/truck accidents
  • Contact sports like football, soccer, and hockey
  • Skiing and snowboarding accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Intentional assault
