Help for your whiplash injury claim in Fernhurst
You may never have heard of a whiplash injury until now. It’s a painful neck injury that can be quite debilitating and may put you out of action for a while. It’s caused by a sudden jolt which causes the muscles and tendons in your neck to overstretch.
You may not know you’ve had a whiplash injury straight away. Stiffness and restriction of movement in your neck can take over 24 hours to become apparent. If you’ve received a whiplash injury from a car crash or other accident that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a personal injury claim in Fernhurst for compensation.
Relief for your neck injury
Get some medical advice straight away. Your doctor can check for any other injuries at the same time. Hopefully the discomfort you’re feeling from your whiplash injury will gradually settle. Doctors recommend taking some painkillers and using an ice pack on the affected area for 10 minutes three times a day for the first 48 hours.
Regaining movement is very important so some gentle stretching exercises might be appropriate as your neck pain eases. Sleep disturbance is a common problem with a whiplash injury. Using enough soft pillows to support your head in a neutral position can help or using a rolled up towel at the base of your neck.
Driving should be avoided until you’ve regained full movement in your neck.
