What is whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury that is often sustained in an MVA but can occur in other situations too. The injury occurs when the head suddenly jolts in any direction at speed, for example as the results of a collision. This causes damage to the soft tissues in the neck and/or upper back which manifests as moderate to severe pain and stiffness in those areas and others.
The pain may increases in severity in the days following the incident, and while pain medication can reduce the symptoms, a chiropractor can treat the source and cause of the problem.
