Listen, as Dr. Wang describes how whiplash is diagnosed.

Dr. Wang:
Whiplash is more of a syndrome. You take into account the history. Typically there is a traumatic episode, and you take into account the patient’s symptoms, and what’s also more important about whiplash is you do the imaging studies, x-rays, MRIs, and you really do not see any abnormalities.
