Car Collisions that Lead to Neck Injuries
If you have been involved in a car collision, you can well understand the damage that can be done to the neck. A car collision often involves high speeds and a sudden extension and retraction of the neck at the time of impact. This hyperextension of the neck followed by an immediate hyperflexion is often termed "whiplash". However, the term whiplash is far too simple and generic to describe the damage done to the neck. A car collision can result in damage to the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the neck all of which are used to support the head. Due to the complexity of the structure of the neck, an injury to the neck can cause pain, numbness and tingling in other parts of the body.
