What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a neck injury resulting from forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, akin to the cracking of a whip. This injury most commonly occurs during rear-end auto accidents but can also result from sports accidents, work injury or other trauma. Whiplash can cause the soft tissues in the neck to stretch and tear, leading to a range of debilitating symptoms.

Symptoms of Whiplash

Symptoms of whiplash can appear within days of the injury and may include neck pain and stiffness, headaches at the base of the skull, dizziness, blurred vision, and fatigue. Some people also experience difficulty concentrating, memory problems, ringing in the ears, sleep disturbances, and irritability. Symptoms can vary in severity and duration, with some individuals recovering quickly and others experiencing chronic neck pain and long-term complications.
