What is whiplash?
Whiplash is the name given to an injury suffered by someone involved in a road traffic accident after his or her head is suddenly forced forwards, backwards or sideways from the result of a collision.
Whiplash can affect drivers and passengers and the symptoms may last a few days or for many months and even years, which is referred to as chronic whiplash.
Symptoms commonly associated with whiplash include:
- pain or stiffness in the neck
- reduced or painful neck movement
- soreness in the neck muscles
Other symptoms that are not so common include:
- pain or numbness in arms and hands
- back pain
