Injuries Caused by Car Accidents During the Holidays

Posted By Cobb Pain & Rehab || 13-Dec-2016

During the holidays, the streets are filled with irresponsible drivers. It is important to be alert and not just to follow the traffic signs, but be vigilant when there are stops or while driving on busy roads.

One of the most common types of car accidents are rear-end accidents. Many times they are caused by drivers who are fatigued, distracted, or driving under the influence of alcohol. This type of accident can cause a neck injury called whiplash. When one vehicle hits another from behind, the force can cause the neck to absorb the impact and move back and forth quickly and unexpectedly (in a motion similar to a cracking whip). Symptoms of this condition include moderate to severe neck pain, stiffness, and sometimes headaches. Many times these symptoms disappear with time and resting of the neck muscles, but in many cases the symptoms persist, indicating more severe injuries.
