At Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you if you have sustained whiplash from a car crash in Pontypool. Whiplash is sustained when the head is suddenly jerked back and forward with considerable force. It causes damage to the tendons, muscles and ligaments in the neck and can happen as a result of playing contact sports.
However, the most common cause of whiplash is a road traffic accident. If the victim is wearing a seatbelt, then the force of the impact could cause their head snap back and forward or sideways. It can happen even in collisions that did not involve high speeds and can unfortunately be difficult to treat.
Symptoms of whiplash include:
- Stiffness in the neck and pain on moving the head
- Tingling and feeling of ‘pins and needles’ in the arms and hands
- Loss of sleep
So if you start to notice any of these signs, then you should make an appointment so visit with your doctor as soon as possible. You could be suffering from whiplash.
