    What is whiplash?

    Whiplash is a very common neck injury usually sustained in car accidents. It is caused by the head and neck being thrown quickly forward and back, usually in a collision of some kind, and can be caused by even minor bumps, especially when the movement is restricted by modern seatbelts.

    It usually appears over the course of a few hours following the accident, and caused a number of symptoms, including the following:

    • Tenderness
    • Stiffness
    • Difficulty moving the head
    • Headaches
    • Muscle spasms
