Whiplash is a very common condition and happens when a person’s neck is whipped back and forth suddenly and violently. It can be caused by rear-end car collisions, contact in sports, slips or falls, and physical abuse or assault. Symptoms may manifest over the course of hours or several days. The pain of whiplash is usually short-lived and treatment is conservative, which may include alternative means. For those unlucky enough to have chronic neck pain as a result of whiplash, invasive treatments such as steroid or anesthetic injection or radiofrequency ablation may be an option.
