Whiplash, also called neck sprain or neck strain, is caused by an abrupt jerking motion of the head that results in injury to the soft tissues of your neck's ligaments, tendons, and muscles. It is caused by an abnormal motion or force applied to your neck that causes movement beyond the neck's normal range of motion. This would be any motion similar to a rear end or side collision in an auto accident. This motion can also take place on a roller coaster or other amusement park rides, sports injuries such as skiing, football and soccer accidents as well as others such as boating accidents, vehicle accidents, airplane travel, or from simply being hit, kicked or shaken. Symptoms of whiplash may be delayed for 24 hours or more after the initial trauma. Symptoms may include headaches; pain in neck, pain in between shoulder blades, shoulder, lower back; numbness in hand/arm; ringing in ears; dizziness; blurred vision and difficulty sleeping and concentrating. In most cases, these soft tissues such as the discs, muscles and ligaments cannot be seen on standard X-rays. home
