What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash, as the name implies, is caused when a force, such as an accident, is exerted and your head whips forward and then backwards. However, ‘whiplash’ is not a medical term. The term whiplash merely describes, in layman’s terms, what happens to the head & neck upon impact. It also helps to describe why whiplash hurts so much.
Technically, whiplash is a neck sprain or strain. Additional medical terms having to do with whiplash injuries are hyperflexion & hyperextension. Hyperflexion is what happens when your head forward forcefully during an accident. Hyperextension is the violent backward whipping motion of your head during an accident.
