Whiplash is a common type of neck injury that occurs when the head and neck is moved forcefully and rapidly in a back-and-forth motion. This often results in injury to discs, muscles, nerves, ligaments, and even bones. Usually associated with a motor vehicle accident, the effects of whiplash can resolve within a few days, or in more severe cases, become an ongoing issue.
