How Do I Know if I Have Whiplash?
Experiencing pain in your neck doesn’t necessarily mean you have whiplash. But the pain is still excruciating.
How do you know?
You might have whiplash if:
- You have limited range of motion in your neck due to pain
- You move your head from side to side, you experience some pain
- You experience stiffness when turning your head over your shoulder
- You notice more frequent headaches
Back and neck pain after an accident is usually a result of whiplash - especially in rear ended collisions.

Whiplash injuries can be caused by one or a combination of the following:
- Auto accident
- Blow to the head
- Contact sports (football, hockey, etc.)
- Physical abuse
Motorcycle whiplash injuries most commonly occur when the motorcycle is struck from behind at relatively low speeds.
In some cases of motorcycle whiplash, the pain can extend to the shoulders, lower back and even down the arms. Some studies have shown the extra mass created by motorcycle helmets can increase the risk of whiplash in an accident, as the flexion and extension of the head and neck are exaggerated.
Despite these findings, wearing a motorcycle helmet undoubtedly reduces the risk of severe injury overall in the event of a crash.
