Whiplash is caused when the neck muscles sustain a sudden jolt in any direction and the ligaments and tendons become damaged. Common symptoms include stiffness of neck, tenderness of neck muscles and the surrounding areas, reduced neck movements and headaches. If you have been involved in an accident that has caused you to sustain whiplash your symptoms won’t fully develop for at least twelve hours.
Whiplash is mostly caused by road traffic accidents, and the severity of the injury when it is a result of a road traffic accident is dependent upon speed and impact. Whiplash can also be caused by sustaining a heavy blow to the head, say during rugby or boxing. Or during a slip or a fall when the head is jolted violently forwards and backwards. Whiplash is a self limiting condition, meaning that it usually gets better by itself.
Rather than wearing a supportive collar or brace, the current belief is to keep moving your neck, instead of keeping it still. Paracetamol and ibuprofen can be used to ease the pain. But if you are still suffering after six months you may require stronger prescription medicine or physiotherapy to ease your chronic pain symptoms.
