What is Whiplash?

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a neck injury caused by the sudden, forceful back-and-forth motion of the neck, similar to the cracking of a whip. It is often associated with rear-end car accidents but can also result from sports injuries, physical abuse, or other traumas, such as falls. While whiplash is sometimes referred to as a neck sprain or strain, these terms can also encompass other types of neck injuries.

For most people, whiplash symptoms improve within a few weeks with a treatment plan that includes pain medication and specific exercises. However, some individuals may experience persistent neck pain and other complications that require ongoing care.
