When Whiplash Symptoms Linger
Whiplash occurs when your head and neck are jolted forwards then snapped backwards violently as a result of sudden impact from behind. This is very common during a car accident, where the occupant of a car is hit by another motorist from the rear with a lot force. Some severe sideways movements can also be a cause of whiplash injuries. It can cause damage to delicate tendons and ligaments, resulting in acute pain and other additional symptoms.
