Have you sustained whiplash?
Whiplash is among the most common injuries to arise as the result of a car accident.
The injury affects the muscles and tendons in the neck, and occurs when the head is thrown about violently upon impact. The weight of the head causes the muscles in the neck to strain, which can lead to many unpleasant side effects. As it is natural for the body to go into shock immediately following an accident it may take a few hours for the symptoms of whiplash to onset. They include:
- Pain, stiffness and swelling in the neck
- Pain and immobility in the shoulders
- Tingling in the arms and fingers
Almost all cases of whiplash will require some form of physiotherapy to fully heal. Mild cases may dissipate after a few weeks, whereas more serious cases can potentially last for months. Statistics reveal that in rare cases, one in five whiplash sufferers will experience symptoms for up to a year.
