Whiplash is a common injury that can occur as a result of a non fault accident in Deganwy. Whiplash is the name given to the incident when the head and neck are propelled forwards, backwards or sideways at an unnatural speed, pulling the ligaments in the neck. The most common cause of whiplash injuries are car accidents – even from a minor shunt.
It can take up to a day for your injury to make itself felt, and it will probably take a week or so to recover, although in some cases it can take months.
You can be diagnosed with whiplash by explaining your symptoms to a doctor. You will not be X rayed unless your doctor suspects a fracture. Unfortunately there is little that can be done to speed up your recovery, it is simply a case of taking painkillers and waiting for your neck muscles to recover. Although you may be prescribed prescription painkillers if you are in a lot of pain.
