Whiplash is the most common neck injury for making an injury claim in St Mary
A rear end shunt is the most common way to get a neck injury. The sudden jolt can send it backwards, forwards or sideways damaging the ligaments and tendons in the neck. This sort of damage anywhere else in the body we would call a sprain, but in the neck it is commonly known as whiplash. Before the invention of cars, it commonly happened for train travellers and was then known as train spine.
A car collision is not the only way to sustain a neck injury
Neck injuries can happen in many ways such as playing contact sports or falling over and knocking your head. In fact anything that causes a sudden sharp movement will have the same effect.
Why you will suspect you have a neck injury
Depending on how severe the neck injury is will determine what symptoms you suffer, but you may experience:
- Pain to the neck area
- Pain in the arms and legs
- Pain in the back
- Numbness in the arms and legs, or pins and needles
- Anxiety or depression
- Muscle spasms
- Blurred vision
Most neck injuries will improve over a short period of a few weeks if the neck gets plenty of rest, with just a little gentle exercise. More severe cases can takes months or even years to heal and some victims are left with a permanent weakness in the neck.
