Injury Biomechanics of the Cervical Spine in Car Collisions - some Needs for Further Research
The article reviews some of the existing research concerning the incidence of soft tissue neck injuries sustained in car collisions. A variety of neck injuries, including to muscles, ligaments, facet joints, discs and nerve tissue appear to result from whiplash trauma. Research questions concerning the relationship between these possible injuries and the large set of known whiplash symptoms are considered.
