Whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck. This type of injury usually occurs during a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA). The sudden force stretches and causes tearing of the muscles and tendons in the neck.

The symptoms associated with whiplash can sometimes take several days before being evident. Common symptoms include pain, decreased neck movement, tenderness to the touch, headaches.
