Whiplash is the more common term used to describe a Cervical Acceleration / Deceleration Injury. When an automobile is hit from either direction, the impact forces the unprotected head and neck into a “whipping” motion, resulting in serious injury. Unlike chronic injuries, whiplash is a very acute and painful condition that cannot be avoided. Statistics say that every person will be in at least one automobile accident in their lifetime. Regardless of the extent of the accident, whiplash can have a lingering effect on one’s cervical spine (neck). Even if pain is not an immediate symptom, the damage done to the spinal cord and nervous system can go undetected until a chronic condition results.
