Whiplash injuries are most usually associated with road traffic accidents in which a vehicle is shunted forward after being hit from behind. In fact, they are the most common type of injury associated with a road traffic accident. However, they can also be caused by in falls and other incidents in which a person endures rapid deceleration.The whiplash injury happens because the neck muscles are stretched rapidly in flexion and extension. The bone, tendons and nerves of the neck may also be affected.
Sufferers of whiplash injuries may complain of neck and back pain. The pain often is felt in the shoulders and sometimes even down to the arms and legs. They may complain of pins and needles or numbness. Recovery time depends on the extent of the injuries. Mild symptoms may abate within a few days and can be easily treated with painkillers however more severe symptoms may require physiotherapy treatment, muscle relaxants and other types of specialist intervention.
