Neck injuries, commonly known as whiplash, are the most common injury suffered in car accidents. Neck strain injuries affect the soft tissues in the neck, pain and swelling could also take days or weeks to develop. Whiplash can be a very controversial injury, as it will not show up in medical tests such as X-Ray or MRI.
The injury itself is very difficult to detect. Due to the human body processing major stress after an accident, our bodies’ own pain relievers start to kick in to numb the pain of the injuries sustained during the accident. Prompt medical attention is advised for early detection as well as to reduce symptoms and speed the recovery process.
