    Whiplash is an injury caused when a person’s neck is suddenly and forcefully jolted from one direction to the other, either forwards and backwards or side to side. This is a common occurrence in road traffic accidents, in which sudden impacts are not unusual, especially from the rear.

    What is a whiplash injury in Hetton?

    A whiplash injury can be quite short-lived or the effects could last your whole life, depending on the severity of the impact. Whiplash is caused when your muscles and/or ligaments are torn or forced, and in the most severe cases can result in disc herniation, nerve root damage, and fractured or dislocated vertebrae.
