It is common for drivers or passengers involved in a rear-end car accident to suffer from aches and pains in and around the neck area, this condition is commonly known as "whiplash". It is caused by the head being thrown forwards and/or backwards at rapid speed.
It is very rare for bones in the neck to be damaged when a whiplash injury occurs. Generally it's the neck muscles, joints and ligaments which suffer the most from the effects of a whiplash-type injury and this can often cause a great deal discomfort. Other symptoms of a whiplash injury can include neck pain, restricted neck movement, headaches and lower back pain.
