Commonly experienced as a result of road traffic accidents, whiplash is a straining or stretching injury to the neck or back caused by a sharp or sudden jerking movement.
Normally in a road traffic accident there is a sudden deceleration caused by colliding with either another vehicle or an object. This deceleration causes the heads of those persons in the car to rapidly move backwards then forwards. It's this movement that causes the strain.
In many cases the symptoms of whiplash, aches and pains down the neck and back, don't present themselves for 1 or 2 days after the accident, that's normally when customers contact us, but we'd recommend that you actually talk to us as soon as possible after the accident.
