When someone tells you they are suffering from a whiplash injury most people will automatically ask about the car accident that they were involved in and how it happened. This is because we all tend to associate whiplash with a car accident such as a rear end shunt. However whiplash can be sustained in an accident at work very easily. Whiplash is when you damage the nerves and tendons in your neck.
This is caused by any accident that makes your head move forwards, backwards and sideways with a sudden jolt. For instance if you were to slip over on a wet floor, or trip over and object in the walkway the movement as you fall to the ground could very easily make your head jolt causing Whiplash.
Whiplash is a very painful injury and can be mild with a short recovery period or major taking a long time to heal with a lot of physiotherapy and in some cases people never regain the full movement in their neck. Whiplash is a sneaky injury as it does not always present itself straight away and can take several hours to appear.
