One of the most common types of car accident injuries reported is whiplash. Although whiplash is often the result of a rear-end accident, it can be caused by almost any type of car collision. Whiplash tends to occur due to the sudden jerking of the body backward and forward during the crash which is often unavoidable due to the forces involved in most collisions.
Also known as hyperextension of the neck, this type of injury primarily strains the muscles of the neck, making whiplash an uncomfortable and painful injury for those who are unfortunate enough to receive it.
With the thousands of auto accidents that are reported on our roads each year, many motorists suffer this injury and the many months it can often take to recover.

Signs And Symptoms Of Whiplash
Many car crash injuries are instantly visible such as broken bones and lacerations, however, whiplash is one type of injury that is not so quickly noticed. After a car accident it is important to get checked out by medical personnel to ensure that you or a loved one is OK.
Knowing the signs and symptoms of whiplash can also help you determine if you have been injured. The following symptoms are indicative of this injury:
- Blurred vision
- Memory problems
- Ringing in the ears
- Neck pain and stiffness
Those suffering from a severe injury may find that the pain has spread to their shoulders or arms and it has become painful to move your head. If you believe you have suffered whiplash after an accident see a doctor right away.
Whiplash treatment can vary depending on the severity of the injury but often includes physical therapy and over-the-counter pain medications. In some cases a doctor may prescribe painkiller injections to relieve muscle spasms, and muscle relaxants.
