Whiplash is produced by a sudden jerking, or backward/forward acceleration of the neck and head, hyperextending the neck beyond its normal range of motion and damaging muscle, ligaments and connective tissue. People in a vehicle that is suddenly and forcibly struck from the rear may sustain “whiplash” injuries.

Although some believe that whiplash injuries are routinely exaggerated, researchers say they cause real pain and enduring problems for thousands of people every year.


According to the National Safety Council, the most common forms of whiplash, which are neck sprains and neck strains, account for almost 10% of all motor vehicle accidents in which long-term disability occurs.
