The Phases of a Whiplash Injury

Whiplash injuries are quite common among victims of car accidents, especially rear-end crashes. If you’ve sustained a whiplash injury, it’s important to visit a chiropractor in Phoenix right away to begin treatment. A whiplash injury occurs in four phases, which you can learn about by watching this video.

This animation explains that when a car is struck, the seat strikes the driver’s torso and causes an abnormal curvature of the cervical spine. Then, the neck becomes hyperextended and the head strikes the back of the seat. This results in injuries to the soft tissues at the front of the neck. As the car crash victim goes through the remaining two phases of the whiplash injury, the tissues in the back of the neck sustain damage.
