Whiplash is a common injury if you’ve been in a car accident. Let’s say you were in a frontal collision. In this case, your car stops abruptly but your body—including your head and neck—continues to move forward in the direction the car was traveling and is then whipped back, only stopping upon contact with the headrest. When this happens, ligaments and muscles in your neck and shoulders are strained. Consequently, movement is restricted so exercise is generally discouraged initially, but can gradually be resumed as your neck begins to heal. Read on to learn more about whiplash and how best to care for yourself.

According to an article from the Dallas Morning News, on May 19, 2017, the Texas Senate passed legislation to “ban texting while driving across the state.” The article went on to state:
The bill would ban drivers from texting while a vehicle is moving, making it a misdemeanor offense punishable by a fine ranging from $25 to $99, with penalties up to $200 for repeat offenders.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is expected to sign the ban into law, which will take effect on September 1, 2017.
