What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is an injury to your neck that happens when your head moves with sudden force. Whiplash is usually associated with rear end collisions that cause your head to move back and forth with extreme force. Your neck muscles and ligaments move and stretch beyond their normal range of motion, and they may even tear.

Neck strain is usually a mild condition that clears up on its own. Whiplash, on the other hand, can cause long-term pain, loss of movement, and discomfort.
