I suffered a whiplash injury in my car accident. Why is it so painful? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

 Whiplash injuries may not be easily seen, but they can be very painful. In accidents as slow as 10 MPH, accident victims can have painful whiplash injuries. The jerking motion of your head and neck causes ligaments and muscles to be stretched beyond what is normal. The motion can also damage your discs and cervical muscles.
