Whiplash is a neck injury caused by sudden, forceful back-and-forth movement of the neck. Car accidents are one of the main culprits causing whiplash injuries, but many people experience injuries due to sports, falls, and other types of trauma. Without effective treatment, whiplash injuries can lead to chronic neck pain.
