In brief: Easy to Diagnose

Whiplash is a pretty straight forward condition given the mechanism of injury.
Medical Doctors, Doctors of Chiropractic, Osteopaths can all diagnose this condition. As far as treatment is concerned, a multi-disciplinary approach may be best; chiropractors for spine and joints, physical therapists to strengthen around the joints, and massage therapists for muscular injury and avoid scar tissue.
