Whiplash

Whiplash can occur whenever you have rapid acceleration or deceleration but most often is associated with car accidents. In this injury the ligaments and soft tissues are strained or sprained which can be accompanied by inflamation, muscle spasm, decrease range of motion caused by subluxation, or increased range of motion due to ligamentous damage. Studies have shown that even low speed collisions can cause whiplash and seat belts don't protect your neck while air bags may or may not depending on the model. Once this damage has occured chiropractic treatment coupled with physical rehab will help return to normal following your recovery.
