Whiplash Headache Definition
Whiplash is a non-medical term describing a range of injuries to the neck caused by or related to a sudden distortion of the neck associated with extension. Nearly 80% of people who experience whiplash develop a chronic headache also known as a cervicogenic headache.
Whiplash is commonly associated with motor vehicle accidents, usually when the vehicle has been hit in the rear; however, the injury can be sustained in many other ways, including falls from stools, bicycles or horses. It stands out as one of the main injuries covered by the car insurers. In the United Kingdom, 430,000 people made a claim for whiplash in 2007 (75% of the UK’s motor insurance claims), accounting for 14% of every driver’s premium.
