    Your whiplash injury

    A whiplash injury may not be apparent at the time of the accident or incident and may only be diagnosed 6-24 hours after an accident occurs.

    Symptoms take time to develop due to the damage inflicted on the soft tissues of the neck due to being suddenly and violently stretched and torn.

    2. Headaches 
    3. Severe pain across the neck area, across the upper back and shoulders
    4. Nausea

    Treating a whiplash injury

    • Resting the neck in bed
    • Supporting the damaged soft tissues with a neck brace to enable the casualty to move easier
