Have you suffered a painful whiplash injury in a car accident?
Here’s the bad news:

Basically, the impact of the accident causes the head to whip back and forth on the neck, surpassing the normal range of motion and subjecting muscles, tendons, and other tissue to extreme stress. In certain vehicles, poorly designed head restraints can cause or worsen whiplash injuries in the event of an accident.
