What is whiplash?
Whiplash is a common injury resulting from an accident, and can have serious consequences. Many people recover completely, but for the people who don’t, the injuries can be life changing. Although common in car accidents, whiplash is also suffered by motorcyclists, passengers and cyclists. It happens when the head is caused to move suddenly in one direction then sharply in another, and can be the result of side, rear or front impact. Any level of impact can cause whiplash.
