Defining Whiplash

Published on June 27th, 2013

If you’ve been involved in an automobile accident, you may not immediately be aware of any injuries you have suffered. Whiplash is a non-medical term that describes a very common injury that automobile accident victims sustain. Because whiplash is a soft tissue injury, the symptoms may not be present until several hours or days after the accident.

A soft tissue injury refers to damage to the muscles, ligaments, or tendons of the body. As this video explains, whiplash is a soft tissue injury that affects a victim’s neck. Damage to the delicate tissues of the neck can result in frequent headaches, neck pain, and dizziness. For this reason, it’s important that accident victims seek immediate medical attention following a traffic collision.
