    Whiplash Accident in Newton


    Dozens of places in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland bear the name Newton. You might have arrived at this page from any one of them. Whichever Newton you come from, you could be suffering from whiplash accident in Newton, or you might be researching on behalf of family or friends.

    What is a whiplash injury?

    When the body sustains an unnatural jolt from a sudden stop at speed, the head can be thrown forward, because the momentum of the body travelling continues, after the vehicle comes to a halt. Subsequently, the head is thrown backwards when the body finally stops also. Tendons in the neck are strained or even sprained. Pain usually sets in a few hours later, and, as with any sprained soft tissue, is extremely tender and painful.

    How do I treat and manage my whiplash injury?

    Neck braces are not recommended. The best advice (although it doesn’t feel like it at the time) is to rest and take painkillers with plenty of water. The tendons will heal and go back into normal position after a few days. If there is any hint of complications or additional symptoms, you should consult your doctor immediately. These include pins and needles in the arms, painful shoulder, problems with sight or hearing, and headaches or migraine.
