Do Seat Belts Cause Whiplash Injury? Utah County

Do Seatbelts Cause Whiplash? Utah County

Today I'm going to discuss whether seatbelts help or hurt in car accidents.

The source material is an article entitled: Seat belt use to save face: impact on drivers’ body region and nature of injury in motor vehicle crashes.

The purpose of their study was to find out what the effects of wearing a seat are and to see if any injuries are directly related to wearing a seatbelt.

Here’s what they found: seat belt use significantly reduces traumatic brain injury, head and face injuries and broken bones.

Interestingly though, they also found that wearing a seat belt led to more spine and soft tissue injuries.

What's your experience? Let me know in the comments.
