A sprain or strain is a soft tissue injury, and when this type of damage happens in the neck, it is called whiplash. Individuals in Illinois who are in automobile crashes frequently experience the condition due to the sudden stretching and bending of the neck. Injuries often include damage to the joints, discs, muscles and nerves. It is critical for a person who is in a motor vehicle accident to seek treatment, even when the injury does not appear to be significant at first.
