Whiplash is caused when the ligaments in your neck are sprained following a sudden movement to the head and neck. This can lead to neck pain, stiffness and loss and movement. It can also affect your back, shoulders, head and arms. Whiplash can also cause psychological problems including anxiety, stress and depression.
The symptoms of a whiplash injury can persist for up to six months, and in some cases people are diagnosed as suffering from chronic whiplash and can be classed as permanently disabled.
