Whiplash is a term used to describe pain experienced after an accident in which an excessive amount of force is applied to the neck. Most whiplash injuries are associated with automobile accidents and affect the ligaments, tendons, or muscles in the spine. You can also get whiplash because of an accidental fall, assault, or sports accident. Whiplash is sometimes referred to as a cervical sprain or hyperextension injury.
