Whiplash

Whiplash is a neck injury caused by a forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip. The motion can injure bones in the spine, discs between the bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves and other tissues of the neck. It is a common injury related to car accidents, however it can also be caused by a sports accident, abuse, or other trauma. Symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, stiffness in the neck, headaches, tenderness or pain in the shoulders, upper back, and/or arms, tingling or numbness in the arms, dizziness, and fatigue. More serious symptoms include blurred vision, irritability, depression, and memory problems.
