No: Whiplash injuries should not cause tendonitis in the hands.

No: Whiplash would be pain in the neck due to spasm in the neck muscles. While this makes you stiff, you should still have use of your fingers. You should probably see your doctor to make sure nothing serious is going on and get treatment.
