Whiplash Injury Causes
The most frequent cause of whiplash is an automobile accident. The amount of physical damage to the car may not relate to the intensity of the neck injury sustained; speeds as low as 10-15 miles per hour can produce enough force to cause whiplash in automobile accident victims, whether they were wearing their seatbelts or not. It’s imperative you receive neck strain therapy in these cases.
Other common causes of whiplash are: contact sports, blows to the head due to a falling object or from being assaulted. Repetitive stress or chronic strain involving the neck (such as using your neck to hold the phone) are also common, non-acute causes.
