May people who are in an accident suffer from whiplash. Whiplash Associated Disorder is a common injury suffered in car accidents. It is also referred to as soft tissue injury. A whiplash injury may be the result of impulsive stretching of the spine, mainly the ligament: anterior longitudinal ligament which is stretched or tears, as the head snaps forward and then back again causing a whiplash injury. Whiplash may be caused by any motion similar to a rear-end collision in a motor vehicle, such as may take place on a roller coaster or other rides at an amusement park, sports injuries such as skiing accidents, other modes of transportation such as airplane travel, or from being hit, kicked or shaken. Shaken baby syndrome can result in a whiplash injury.
Whiplash or soft tissue injury can affect the whole body but will often cause disability in the spine, shoulders, down the legs and arms and be accompanied by headaches, fatigue, forgetfulness and irritability. Whiplash can cause significant impairments and lead to a number of conditions including chronic pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression to name a few.
