Whiplash and whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) represent a range of injuries to the neck caused by or related to a sudden distortion of the neck usually in an auto accident, usually when the vehicle has been hit in the rear. Although whiplash is most frequently the result of a rear-end collision, whiplash can occur in several other situations including:
Whiplash can often extend into other areas such as the upper back, shoulders and arms.

What is important is that ALL Research has shown that chiropractic has been a very effective approach to healing whiplash.
