People that are injured in a car crash frequently suffer whiplash injuries, it is important to check for hidden injuries and to document the extent of damage to your bodies, muscles, tendons, ligaments, discs, nerves and spinal joints so as to be able to access the injury and design a specific treatment program to help you recover your health and ability to function normally again.
Whiplash injuries occur as a result of:
- Differential motion (head jerking different directions rapidly)
- Linear acceleration,angular acceleration, or shearing forces (basically, being bounced around inside a car
- Direct contact with objects in the vehicle (seat belt, airbags, etc.)
- Extent of forces beyond human tolerance
Most whiplash injuries are the result of a collision that causes sudden acceleration and then deceleration to the spine. The neck and back forcibly bends forward and then backward causing sprain/strain injuries to the ligaments, muscles discs, vertebrae and nerves of the spine, these sudden, violent movements create sprain, strain injuries to the spines of the occupants of the vehicle.
