Whatever the reason for an accident, the consequences can be dire. A whiplash injury in Alcester, although non-fatal, can have long lasting effect on your wellbeing. It is predominantly a neck pain but can also affect you in the back, cause you to have constant headaches and in some chronic cases can cause your mobility to be seriously deferred.
A whiplash injury can happen anywhere in the UK and at any time. It is a non-fatal condition but nonetheless it can be very painful. A frequent cause of whiplash is a road traffic accident (RTA). There are many reasons an R.T.A can happen such as:
- Driver error
- Careless driving
- Reckless driving
- Drunk driving
- Lapse in concentration
Treatment varies from case to case, with for lesser cases, plenty of rest resulting in no more than a few weeks of discomfort is the norm. Doctors recommend R.I.C.E (rest ice compression, elevation) and maybe a course of anti-inflammatory drugs. Although research shows that light exercise and gentle manipulation like massage or some physiotherapy also help.
More severe cases known as “Whiplash Syndrome” may well be longer lasting (6 months plus). The Treatment is the same as before but ongoing. A chronic sufferer of a whiplash injury in Alcester may go down the road of regular injections for pain relief.
