A disease such as whiplash presents a large number of complex social problems. With the help of medical anthropology it is possible to look at whiplash as a multifaceted concept influenced by the social and cultural norms in Western society. In this way whiplash can be considered to be a socially negotiable illness instead of an untreatable disease.
