Accidents Causing Whiplash
The most commonly seen type of accident resulting in whiplash is an auto accident, in particular a rear end collision. This is primarily due to the mechanics involved as well as the force exerted upon impact. Other, less common types of accidents that can induce whiplash are sports injuries such as skiing accidents, slips and falls, being assaulted and amusement park ride accidents. Any movement, force or accident that strains the neck with sufficient force from behind can result in whiplash.
Often times, although not all the time, one may not feel the effects of a whiplash injury for several days after the accident. Symptoms commonly include, neck pain, back pain, stiffness and aches. The victim may also experience numbness and tingling in the extremities as well as headaches. Whiplash typically involves the neck, upper back and mid-back.
