Whiplash and Spine

Whiplash refers to the injury to the neck caused by motor vehicle or car accident. Over 120,000 whiplash injuries occur in the US every year. Up to 10% patients with whiplash injury become totally disabled. Whiplash injuries account for greater than 65% of all injury claims. In Canada, whiplash injuries account for approximately 2 million insurance claims every year. In Britain, the economic cost exceeds $600 million annually (ICBC). About 300,000 of these become disabled. Cervicalgia refers to neck pain that occur towards the rear end of the cervical vertebrae. It affects the nerves arising from the cervical vertebrae. Whiplash or bad posture or lying position can also result in cervicalgia.

Certain tests like MRI, X-ray, and CT scan are used to diagnose certain spinal disorders. Spine surgery may be needed in rare cases. In he absence of proper medical treatment, it could become a serious condition.
