When the neck and spine are being violently propelled, snapped forward, hyper-extended, hyperflexed— all it what you will—you can imagine it’s not a good thing. Whiplash briefly  turns the spine into an “S” shape—and vertebrae, which are supposed to slide over each other, push against and scrape each other in whiplash situations. All these events can cause tightness and pain in the upper spine, neck, and shoulders due to soft-tissue damage (injury to muscles, ligaments, and tendons), disc damage, nerve impingement, headaches, dizziness, irritability, blurred vision, and sleep disturbance.
