Whiplash: A Forceful Neck Injury
Whiplash is a powerful force. Whiplash injury, like the sudden, sharp snap of a whip, hurls your head backwards (hyperextension) and forward (hyperflexion), injuring your neck. Whiplash injury can be caused by a car accident, sports injury, or simply a push from behind. "Hidden whiplash" can also be present, since symptoms don't always appear right away. Whiplash injury and its symptoms are treated by chiropractic physicians who are spine specialists uniquely trained to diagnose and treat whiplash injuries, and help prevent more serious injuries from developing.
