OUCH!! You've hurt your neck and/or
back in a motor vehicle accident as a result of a head-on, rear-end or T-bone (side) collision impact. You are experiencing neck pain, headache, fatigue, muscle spasms, even back pain, shoulder pain, leg pain, all depending on what happened in the car accident. It may hurt just holding your head up! You may be experiencing a Whiplash Associated Disorder (WAD). WAD may include any of the above mentioned conditions including other cognitive problems such as nervousness, stress, restlessness, poor sleep, mood swings, reduced energy levels, impaired memory and concentration.
