Whiplash Treatment

What is whiplash and what causes it?

Whiplash is a non-medical term referring to the soft tissue injury to the neck. It is also referred to as neck sprain or neck strain. With whiplash, the intervertebral joints between the vertebrae, discs, ligaments, cervical muscles, and nerve roots may become damaged when the head does a backward and/or forward jerking motion like that of a whip. Hence the word whiplash. This is usually caused by an automobile accident where the injured party was rear ended.
