Caption

Whiplash neck injury. Illustration of a sectioned lateral (side) view of the cervical spine of the neck, showing the soft tissue damage (red) caused by whiplash. This injury occurs when the neck is bent forcibly and violently backwards and then forwards, or vice versa, for example during a car accident. This can cause injury to the spinal joints of the neck, to the spinal cord, to ligaments and soft tissues. Commonly pain and neck stiffness are worse 24 hours after the injury. Treatment may involve an orthopaedic collar, muscle-relaxant drugs, and physiotherapy.
