Whiplash
A 3D illustration of whiplash, an injury caused by the sudden acceleration and deceleration of the head and neck. This type of injury is most commonly seen in rear-end motor vehicle collisions, resulting in hyperextension of the muscles and ligaments of the neck. There can also be damage to the cerebrum similar to a concussion as the head snaps back and forth, causing the brain to shift inside the skull.
