The most common neck injury is whiplash
Whiplash is the most common of neck injuries, and in fact 78% of motor related claims are for this condition. What at one time was known as train spine because it tended to happen in train crashes, is caused by a sudden jolt to the head sending it backwards, forwards or sideways damaging the ligaments and tendons in the neck. This sort of damage anywhere else in the body we would call a sprain.
