Neck Pain After Whiplash

During a rear-end collision, the head and torso are thrust in opposite directions in a very short period of time. So it is not surprising that most of the symptoms of whiplash are centered in that part of the body between the head and the torso — the neck.

The neck is made up of a complex network of bones, discs, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, and muscles — and all of them can be injured in a crash. Watch the video below or browse our articles to learn more about neck pain caused by whiplash.
