Whiplash of the head and back is caused by the head and / or neck being thrown backward, forward or sideways in a sudden and unexpected motion. There is an force exerted such that joints are forced beyond their normal range of movement causing pain and usually damage to the effected tissues.

Whiplash in the head and back have these following symptoms; headaches, fatigue, pain in one or both arms, shoulder pain, dizziness, as well as vision problems and ringing in the ears (tinnitus).
