WHAT IS WHIPLASH?

Whiplash usually happens when an auto is rear-ended. When a car is hit from the back, then people in the front of the car may experience a rapid backward-forward movement in their head and neck. While the process of the injury is often called CAD “Cervical acceleration-deceleration”, the term WAD “whiplash associated disorders” describes the actual injury condition and symptoms. The rapid movements injure the vertebrate, neck and back muscles, ligaments and the brain. Accidents as slow as 5 mph can result in whiplash.
