We Were Only Going 20 MPH So Why Is My Neck Hurting So Bad?
According to researchers, Foreman and Croft, the head accelerates at up to 5 times the initial acceleration to the body. What does this mean in plain words? If you were in an accident that resulted in what some people claim is a "low-impact" say at 20 mph on your body it could result in an acceleration force of your head up to as much as 100 mph! This can resut in severe damage to your spine and brain at only 20 MPH! The next time someone says you were in a "low impact" crash consider the source.
