What is a whiplash injury?
A whiplash injury is caused by a violent and sudden heavy jolt to the neck or head. This type of jerking movement causes the delicate tendons, muscles and ligaments in the neck to become overstretched and torn, resulting in severe pain and discomfort.

- Falling from a height;
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Sports-related accidents;
- Industrial accidents;
- Cycling accidents;
- Pedestrian-related accidents; and
- Motorcycle accidents.
The main symptoms are pain and stiffness across the neck and shoulders and headaches. You my experience dizziness or nausea and it will be very difficult to turn or move your head.
