    Port Talbot is a town in the county borough of Neath Port Talbot, Wales. It had a population of 37,276 in 2011. The earliest evidence of humans in Port Talbot has been found on the side of Mynydd Margam, where farming ditches can be found at an age of 14,000 BC during the Bronze Age. There were Iron Age hill forts on Mynydd Dinas, Mynydd Margam, Mynydd Emorch and other mountains. Mynydd Hawdef contains remains of an ancient Iron Age village. The Romans first introduced the Margam deer herd.

    Women are more likely to suffer with an injured neck

    Women are more affected by pains in the neck area, which can range from mild aches to severe burning pains. These can happen for many reasons, including:

    • Sleeping awkwardly;
    • Sitting in an awkward position;
    • Worry and stress;
    • Injury or trauma;
    • A slipped disc; and
    • Brittle bones.

    Most neck problems are caused by accidents

    Most neck problems are caused by an accident; the most common way is when a car goes into the back of another car, causing a jolt to the head. This can force the head of the occupant to jerk suddenly backwards, forwards or sideways out of its normal movement zone, damaging the tendons and ligaments in the neck.

    This type of injury is known as whiplash. There can be other causes of this injury — in fact, anything that results in the sudden, harsh movement of your head will probably mean that you get a whiplash injury. If the accident was not your fault, you would be entitled to make an injury claim using an injury lawyer in Port Talbot.

    Whiplash symptoms

    The symptoms you have for a whiplash injury will vary greatly depending on how bad the injury is, and sometimes the symptoms do not manifest themselves immediately, but they can include:

    • 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;
    • Headaches;
    • Anxiety or depression;
    • Muscle spasms;
    • Dizziness;
    • Tiredness;
    • Blurred vision; and

    Mild whiplash takes just a few weeks from which to recover, but chronic whiplash takes a very long time. Some people never fully recover.
