Whiplash symptoms are caused by actual changes in the brain
Study reveals changes in the regions of the brain connected to pain and posture processing. Whiplash symptoms that last years after a car accident but cannot be seen in tests could be down to previously unseen functional changes in the pain and posture processing parts of the brain, according to new research. The results of the study suggest close interaction between the neck and brain, resulting in changes in blood flow.
