Whiplash - Coup and Contrecoup Closed Head Injury - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
Whiplash - Coup and Contrecoup Closed Head Injury. Shows the contrecoup injury occurring when the force from a rear end automobile collision causes the head to snap backward while the front of the brain strikes the interior of the skull.

In the coup injury, the head recoils forward, as happens when the body is restrained by a lap and shoulder belt, while the brain remains in stasis until the forward rushing skull strikes the rear part of the brain.
