WHIPLASH

Whiplash, also called cervical acceleration/deceleration (or CAD) syndrome, is a neck injury commonly caused by car accidents, falls, and contact sports.  It results from a quick, jerking motion that forces the neck beyond its normal range of motion.  When the head is suddenly and violently whipped back and forth, the cervical spine can be hyper extended, or forced past its normal range of motion.  This can result in permanent stretching of ligaments.
