What is Whiplash Disorder?

Whiplash is a term used to describe a neck injury caused by a sudden movement of the head forwards, backwards or sideways.  It often occurs after a sudden impact such as a road traffic accident. The vigorous movement of the head damages the ligaments and tendons in the neck.

Causes of whiplash

Road accidents are the main cause of whiplash, but it can also occur following a sudden blow to the head – for example, during contact sports such as boxing or rugby a slip or fall where the head is suddenly and violently jolted backwards being struck on the head by a heavy or solid object

Diagnosing whiplash

Whiplash can usually be diagnosed from a description of your symptoms. Any further tests and scans are not usually required. X-rays and scans, such as computerised tomography (CT)or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), will usually only be recommended if a fracture or other problem is suspected.

Common symptoms of whiplash include:

N

You need relief from pain and/or improvement in function

N

reduced and painful neck movements

N

You suffer from an injury that limits your normal daily functioning or physical activity

N

headaches

After an accident, the symptoms of whiplash often take a while (6-12 hours) to develop. The neck pain and stiffness is often worse on the day after the injury and may get worse for several days afterwards.
