Whiplash is the most common accident injury, and even a seemingly minor accident can cause that sudden jerking of your head backward and forwards, leading to chronic neck and back pain, headaches, dizziness, imbalance, migraines, or more serious injuries. Other common causes, including:

  • Sports injuries

  • Falls

  • Physical abuse/assault.


Seeking treatment as soon as possible after a whiplash injury is important. Because symptoms of whiplash can take time to develop, it is easy to think that you are not as injured as you really are. People often don’t seek treatment because they don’t feel hurt, but by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may become permanent.


The injuries resulting from whiplash include damage to muscles, nerves, and ligaments, and joints, and discs in the spine as well as other tissues of the head and neck. Whiplash can sometimes result in brain injury. The cervical spine is hyper-flexed and extended in these injuries, and supporting tissues are stretched and may tear and bleed. Irritated nerves can lead to referred pain, and trigger points in muscles can set off pain and nerve responses in other areas.
