While a whiplash injury or herniated disc injury to the neck is a common injury that occurs in motor vehicle accidents, a whiplash injury to the neck can often be confused with an injury to one of the shoulders. Sometimes, it takes a substantial amount of medical treatment and time to figure out if the injury is to either the neck, to the shoulder, or to both. This is because the two areas of the body are biomechanically linked by the nerves that come off the cervical area of the spine. Often an injury that seems to be generating pain in the shoulder can be referred pain from a neck injury or what appears to be an injury to the neck can often be due a torn rotator cuff/labral tear in the shoulder.
