Whiplash

A ten-mile-an-hour collison is equivalent to catching a two-hundred-pound bag of cement dropped from a second-story window (Science Digest - February 1985). Rear-end auto collisions are the most frequent cause of cervical spine injuries, according to clinical studies. Approximately 85 percent of cervical spine disorders are the result of auto crashes. Only, about 15 percent of these crash injuries resulted from head-on or side collisions.
