Whiplash: Causes, Symptoms & Treatment

Whiplash: Causes, Symptoms  & Treatment Whiplash is one of the most frequent injuries resulting from an auto accident. The most common motor vehicle accidents in the United States, and also most likely to result in whiplash, are rear collision accidents. If you or someone you know suffers from the symptoms of whiplash, it is important to seek  care immediately. Whiplash is caused by a sudden aggressive, unrestrained movement of the neck and head.

Symptoms of whiplash may include: neck pain, back pain, headache, dizziness, arm pain, decreased motion in the neck or back, and even disorientation. If you were recently involved in an auto or other type of accident and these symptoms relate to you, it is important that you seek medical attention immediately.
