Whiplash is the common name for neck and back injuries caused by sudden movements of the head forwards, backwards or sideways. This is the most common injury sustained in road traffic accidents and can occur even in low speed collisions. It can also be sustained in other incidents such as falls from bicycles or horses.
In many cases persons do not realise immediately after an accident that they have suffered whiplash injuries and may begin to feel the effects of whiplash symptoms in 2 or 3 weeks after the accident. It is very important to seek medical assistance as soon as any symptoms of whiplash appear.
The most common symptoms of whiplash injuries are the following:
- Pain in neck and stiffness
- Limited and painful neck movements
- Headaches and sleeplessness
