This is a term for an event that occurs in a rear end collision in a motor vehicle accident, sometimes leading to in neck pain. Studies have shown that whiplash is not a flexion-extension or acceleration-deceleration injury as popular belief would have it. It appears that the cervical spine is subjected to a compression injury in which the trunk is forced upward into the cervical spine, resulting in possible strain and injury to the disk and facet joints. According to epidemiological data not all patients sustain injury, and most injuries are minor from which the majority of patients recover (Bogduk and McGuirk 2006c).
