In brief: Sure
Anything that causes the neck to hyperextend backward can cause whiplash symptoms.
Falls, amusement park rides, sports like football are some of the other causes.

In brief: DEFINITELY
Any type of trauma can cause a whiplash injury.
Sports, falls, sleep wrong, a strong sneeze, etc. The history is critical, including the cause, your head/neck position, severity and strength of impact, and duration of your symptoms.
