One of the most common injuries suffered by people in traffic accidents is whiplash. A lot of people seeking the help of injury claim specialists in Ammanford are looking for assistance with their whiplash claim. But what exactly is it, and why does it seem so common?
What is whiplash?
Although many of us automatically associate whiplash claims with car accidents, it can be caused by any accident that creates a sudden jolt of the head in any direction. This sudden strain on the neck can cause damage to tendons and soft tissue, and the severity of the damage can vary massively from case to case. Some victims will have little more than soreness and stiffness for a few weeks, while for other people it can be debilitating and affect them for the rest of their lives.
How is whiplash treated?
There is no specific whiplash treatment, but many common practices can help people to manage. Keeping active will help, as can anti-inflammatory drugs and pain killers. Some victims also like to apply ice packs to the area to help reduce swelling, but never put ice directly onto your skin, always wrap it in something first, such as a tea towel.
Why does whiplash seem so common?
Our heads are one of the most exposed part of our body, and any sudden impact that jolts our body often causes some form of strain to our neck. This is almost nearly always the case in car accidents, although not every jolt is fierce enough to cause whiplash. As car accidents are one of the most common types of accident, whiplash claims are therefore one of the most common types of claim.
