DEFINITION – What does Whiplash mean?
Whiplash is the common term used to describe neck strain. Most people automatically associate the word with the snapping action your neck experiences when you get rear-ended in a car accident. The fact is that any forceful hit you receive that causes your head to snap either backward or forward can cause this type of injury. It’s a common issue in both professional and amateur sports, especially in contact sports like football or rugby. The pain of whiplash is the result of stretching and tearing of the muscles and tendons holding your neck.
