Its nothing, probably just a little whiplash. Thats what you might be thinking when you have a little neck pain. However, whiplash is a very serious spinal cord injury. When your neck and head are pushed beyond their normal range of movement, whiplash causes tissue damage as well as neck or back pain. If you suffer whiplash from a car accident or any other accident that you didn't cause, then you should think about consulting with a paralysis attorney (sometimes called a personal injury lawyer).
