What is Whiplash?

Whiplash injury is a common consequence following motor vehicle accidents.

The term 'whiplash' was first used in 1928 to describe the effects of sudden acceleration or deceleration forces in motor vehicle accidents that resulted in injuries to the cervical spine. For this reason, whiplash is medically known as cervical acceleration-deceleration (CAD) syndrome. Because of the extensive list of symptoms attributable to whiplash, it is also commonly referred to as whiplash associated disorder (WAD).

If you suspect that you have experienced whiplash, you are not alone. There are approximately 3 million new whiplash injuries each year, and that number is growing. In fact, Dr. Arthur Croft, a leading researcher of whiplash, has even referred to the increased incidence as a modern epidemic. Whether or not I agree with the term epidemic or not, one thing is for sure - I do not expect the number of whiplash cases to go down anytime soon. Especially with the number of distracted drivers increasing with the prevalence of cell phones and other electronics utilized by many drivers.
