The symptoms of whiplash
It is not unusual for the symptoms of whiplash to not start for a little while after the accident, quite often the next day. When your head is suddenly jolted it can damage the nerves and tendons in the neck, this is what causes whiplash and the symptoms can include:
- Pain in the neck area
- Stiffness and lack of movement in the neck
- Pins and needles in the arms and legs
- Muscle spasms
- Blurred vision

The treatment for whiplash
With plenty of rest and gentle exercise, most cases of whiplash will need no further treatment and you will recover in a few weeks. Painkillers and ice packs can help reduce the pain and swelling, but always remember never to put the ice directly onto your skin. It should be wrapped in a towel or something similar first.
The more severe cases of whiplash can take a long time to get better and some people never totally recover. In these cases neck braces and physiotherapy may be used to help relieve the symptoms.
