My question is, and this is related to an existing problem, can whip lash occur over time with excessive twisting motions as opposed to only happening with a quick jerk as in a car accident?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Whiplash injury is sudden car break related spine injury, less common in former case you mentioned.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
