    Whiplash injuries in Verwood

    Most people associate whiplash injuries in Verwood, and whiplash injuries sustained anywhere else, with car accidents, usually one car running into the back of another.  Although this is a very common way for victims to suffer whiplash injuries in Verwood, it is not the only way this type of injury happens by any means.

    Other causes of whiplash injuries in Verwood

    Whiplash is caused by anything that creates a sudden movement to your neck or head that forces it out of its normal comfort zone.  This could be:

    • Falling over and landing awkwardly, twisting your neck as you go down.
    • Some heavy or solid object hitting your head, perhaps a football as you stroll through a park, or a tool dropped from a construction site as you are walking past.
    • Playing contact sports, such as rugby or boxing.
    • Lifting heavy objects incorrectly can stretch the neck muscles, and if this is part of your job, you should be properly trained in how to lift thins without injuring yourself.

    These are just a few examples of other causes of whiplash injuries in Verwood, there are hundreds of ways it can happen.

    The pain of whiplash

    Whiplash is basically a sprain in your neck, which means the muscles and ligaments have been torn or stretched. This is a very painful injury, that often the victim is not aware they have suffered till the day after the accident that caused it. Then the pain starts and can be very disabling. Some victims suffer other symptoms as well, such as nausea, migraines, double vision and pins and needles in their arms. It can cause depression, and because it makes a victim so uncomfortable, sleeping can be a problem too.

    The only good thing about whiplash is that it is not life threatening, and it will get better over time. A mild case usually heals in just a few week, but severe whiplash can take several months.
