Traumatic Neck and back Injuries
Before the invention of the automobile, whiplash injuries were called “railway spine” because they were often associated with train collisions. Since then, medical and scientific study has identified with precision the type of injuries, sometimes referred to as “acceleration – deceleration injuries,” that occur when a person is in a vehicle or vessel and is struck by another vehicle or vessel from behind. Although brushed off by many, whiplash injuries are very real injuries of the cervical (neck) spine, the thoracic (mid-back) spine, and the lumbar (lower back) spine. One recent study documented the persistence of these injuries by following patients for five years and concluded, “Deteriorated quality of life in the physical domain remained 5 years after the accident.” (BMC Public Health. 2015; 16: 13, published online January 5, 2016).
