What exactly is a Whiplash injury?
Whiplash is the term used to describe an injury to the neck muscles, tendons or ligaments. It is normally caused when sharp movement of the head damages them or they are over reached and extended backwards or forwards or sideways, or it can occur if the head received a blow or is struck by a heavy object.
What are the symptoms of Whiplash?
Common symptoms of whiplash are pain and stiffness to the neck. Movement may be restricted and the victim may also suffer headaches or dizziness. It can take between 6-12 hours for the symptoms of whiplash to materialise and it usually gets worse before it gets better.
How is Whiplash caused?
Many people sustain a Whiplash injury during a road traffic accident and surprisingly Whiplash can occur just as frequently during impacts at low speed as at high speed. Whiplash can also be caused when the head receives a heavy blow, perhaps during a contact sport such as boxing or rugby. Or it can be caused if the head is struck by a heavy object. A slip or fall where the head is suddenly jolted forwards or backwards can also bring on a whiplash injury.
