Whiplash occurs when your head and neck are forced back and forward suddenly and without warning. Whiplash injuries occur most often during rear-end collisions but can also result from contact sports, physical abuse, and even amusement park rides. Whiplash moves the soft tissues surrounding the cervical spine beyond their typical range of motion. Symptoms might not appear for a while, so you should be mindful of any physical changes for a few days following any crash or other injury event. But where do you feel whiplash pain? Is it centralized, or can it radiate? We'll explore that and when to see a whiplash chiropractor in the article below.
