Whiplash is the act of hyperflexion and hyperextension of the neck or lower back, usually from a quick change in direction of the person's body. The most common example of this is from a car accident or a sports injury. The patient will usually present with limited range of motion and localized discomfort. Many times symptoms are common down the arm or leg immediately after the injury or will present later in onset. Weakness in an arm or leg can also be common. Your doctor will usually take x-rays or get imaging to help rule out any fractures or dislocations. Adjustments to the affected area can help improve range of motion and help decrease inflammation that is causing pain. Exercises and other pain relieving modalities may be used or prescribed for at home to also help.
