What is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a soft tissue injury to the head, neck, shoulders or back following a sudden acceleration-deceleration force. It is a painful condition, often involving stiffness of movement and tightening of the muscles, ligaments or tendons and can badly affect your mobility.
These symptoms are not always immediately apparent; they often develop after a period of time has passed since the accident, for example a few days later.
