Whiplash: recognizing the signs and how is it treated?

Whiplash describes the motion of your head and neck when it is suddenly accelerated and then snapped backwards from swift deceleration, resulting in a whipping motion. Whiplash injuries occur when the soft tissues of your neck are over extended. The fast back and forth motion extends your tissue beyond the normal range of motion, resulting in pain and sensitivity. Most whiplash cases are the result of a car accident, especially rear end collisions.
