Can Whiplash affect my Lower Back?

The Spine is Like a Kinetic Chain
Whiplash typically refers to the neck but it can affect the back. Let's just say you were hit from behind while in the car or maybe fell on your back. My first point is that your whole spine is connected. So if you did take the brunt of the whiplash to the neck you can guess it will work its way to the thoracic (mid back) spine or to the lumbar (low back). Second when you get hit from behind or "fall" on your back you can get direct trauma to that area as well.
