Whiplash is also known as neck sprain or cervical sprain. This is mostly connected from vehicular injuries where there is sudden distortion of the neck. Whiplash happens when a person's head is being thrown suddenly backward then forward forcing the muscles on the neck to move beyond the normal reach. The tissues and ligaments maybe damaged because of this action.

Symptoms are mostly described as pain and aching to the neck and back, limited mobility of the neck, and even back and shoulder pain. These symptoms may not occur immediately but are felt a few days afterward the accident. We have to understand also that whiplash is usually restrained to the spinal cord, thus affecting the neck and mid back.
