Can hyperextention of the vertebral column during whiplash result in the rupture of the ligamentum flava? Is there any type of scenario (even if rare) where this type of injury would cause the ligament to completely or partially rupture? If so, is there any medically based evidence or case studies that document this situation?


There are no medical professions on the forum side of this site. Therefore, no one is qualified to provide any type of medical advice. We enforce this by having two forum rules:
6.02 You agree not to ask for any analysis or interpretation of diagnostic tests (ie MRI, CTScans, EMG, etc.),
6.03 You agree not to respond to any request for analysis of diagnostic tests (ie MRI, CTScans, EMG, etc.)

However, since you are a new member, this informational message is all I need to send
