Yes. That is what happened to me. I am a 32-year old female and was in great shape before my chiropractor manipulated my neck. My life changed ever since. It has been 5 months since the incident and I am still going to Physio Therapy every week. I have paid so much money and my condition has only improved slightly. I can not work out at all or do any kind of activities like playing with my daughter. I am depressed and every day think of my life prior to the manipulation. I am sorry to hear that it happened to you as well. I hope you recover one day.

I had impulse therapy on my neck by a chiropractor and it did cause whiplash

chiropractic can absolutely cause whiplash.   An over eager chiropractor adjusted my c2 without warning or permission.   I was in pain for 3 months and had to wear a neck brace.   It was diagnosed as whiplash.   That was 24 years ago and my neck has never been okay since then.   By the way, I went in for an adjustment to my upper back, not my neck.   Beware.   Another chiropractor, whom I had been seeing for SI joint disfunction, went the wrong way and put out my back.   But that is another story.
