Cervical Hyperflexion and Hyperextension with Brain Injury - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical illustration series shows a cervical hyperflexion and hyperextension whiplash injury resulting in a contrecoup injury to the brain, which is an injury to the opposite side of the initial impact. As the drawings show, when the head moves forward, the brain strikes the inside of the back of the skull. Conversely, when the head moves backward rapidly, the brain hits the interior of the front of the skull.
