What is whiplash?
Whiplash is term which describes a range of injuries caused by the sudden distortion of the neck. Whiplash is commonly associated with road traffic accidents and often occurs where the vehicle has been hit from the rear. Whiplash can occur at low speeds of 15 miles per hour or less.
