What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a painful and uncomfortable condition that can leave you in debilitating pain and struggling to move and turn your body, including your head, neck, and shoulders, independently.
Whiplash may also be referred to as a neck sprain or strain. It is a soft tissue injury of the neck caused by the unexpected and forceful movement of the head and neck snapping back and forth quickly.
Whiplash is usually associated with patients who have been in automobile injuries, but it is also common among athletes who participate in contact sports like rugby and football.
Whiplash may be diagnosed by combining one or more diagnostic tools including:
- Physical examination
- MRI or CT scan
