Need injury solicitors in Castleton to manage a whiplash case?
Whiplash is a common injury usually sustained during a car accident. It affects the head, neck and shoulders from being jostled around in the accident. Whiplash can vary in severity, but is usually initially uncomfortable and in some cases can take some time to recover from. If you have been in an accident and it wasn’t your fault injury solicitors in Castleton could help you claim compensation. In the meanwhile, here are some of the things you should do.
- See a doctor: You should go to hospital or see a doctor as soon as possible if you suspect that you have whiplash. Whiplash is fairly easily treated, but you may actually be suffering from something else. When your neck, shoulders or spine is involved you should always see a doctor to confirm that it is not something more worrying. Your doctor can take a scan and confirm what you are suffering from, and will then know the best course of treatment for you.
- Get a massage: Massage will help to heal any soft tissue damage which has been brought on by your whiplash injury. Massage also helps to ease any pain you are suffering, and get the muscles to heal naturally and quickly. You can get a massage as often as you like, even if the pain isn’t particularly bad, as it will help to ease any tension in the muscles.
- See a chiropractor: You may have some damage to the bones in your spine thanks to your whiplash injury, and a chiropractor will be able to work with this damage and help to restore any movement to your neck and back.
- Use ice and heat: For the first few days after your injury you should be thinking about using ice on the areas which are sore to bring down swelling and numb the pain. After a few days move on to applying heat, which will bring about more flexibility to your muscles.
