A 45-year-old female asked:
can whiplash occur in a side to side motion or only front back motion?

Avoid whiplash: It was drilled into my head a long time ago to avoid the word whiplash as it can be confusion. Certainly, there are muscles and ligaments that you can strain from side to side injury as well.
