Whiplash is a term that describes the sudden forward and backward movement of the head and neck most commonly occurring during an auto accident. Whiplash can affect several areas of the body including spinal cord, neck, brain, ligaments, intervertebral disks, muscles, joints and tendons. Diagnostic tools such as X-rays and MRI scans of the affected areas are very helpful to diagnose the injuries associated with the accident and provide the correct treatment plan for each individual case. Many people think you have to be hit at high speeds to have whiplash from an auto accident but even a minor bumper to bumper crash can result in whiplash injuries which can cause long lasting damage to your neck and spinal cord.
