Whiplash is classified as a neck injury that occurs due to a violent back-and-forth movement of the head. The movement is similar to someone cracking a whip, hence the name. One way whiplash can happen is if you've been involved in a car accident where someone hits your vehicle from behind, causing your head to jerk rapidly forward and then back.
