What is Whiplash?

A sudden back and forth acceleration of the head on the neck is the simplest way to define whiplash. A whiplash can result in pains in the neck, shoulder, mid back low back and headaches. A car accident typically causes a whiplash, yet it can be the result of any traumatic event where your head is violently and suddenly shaken.

What to do if you have Whiplash?
