    Whiplash injury in Alton

    Reducing neck tension

    There are many reasons you may be suffering from a tense or sore neck. One thing which can cause a sore neck is a whiplash injury, sustained from a road accident or even a fall. For something like a whiplash injury in Alton you need to go to a doctor and see what medication or treatments the doctor prescribes, as this is often not as straightforward as neck tension from sitting at your desk for too long and so on.

    You may also be able to claim compensation for a whiplash injury in Alton, so call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, to find out more. Your whiplash injury in Alton will be handled by experienced solicitors and you shouldn’t have to go to court.

    For more simple types of neck tension, there a few things you can do to ease the tension and make your neck and back feel less sore.

    Drink water

    Often aches and pains in the body are simply caused by a lack of hydration. In fact, a lack of hydration can cause a huge number of problems for your body, that you might not ever expect. Make sure that you are drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day, and double this if you are doing a lot of exercise, or are in a heatwave.

    Try neck stretches if you don’t have a whiplash injury in Alton

    For neck tension, stretches can do wonders for getting your neck to stretch out and become loose and relaxed again. If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Alton then you should never attempt neck stretches without speaking to your doctor or a physical therapist first, or you could make your problems much worse. Some stretches you can try include:

    • Rolling your shoulders. Try to roll them both backwards and forwards three times.
    • Pull your neck with your hand. Place your hand over your head towards your ear and stretch your head towards that shoulder whilst stretching the other arm out and down.
    • Turn your head. This simple stretch requires you to simply turn your head all the way to the left for a count of ten, and then all the way to the right. Repeat three times.
    • Roll your neck in a circle. You can clasp your hands underneath your head, along the back of your neck, to support it as you do this.

    Stay active

    One of the best ways to prevent neck and back tension which occurs at the end of a long working day is to keep moving throughout the day. Even if you just take a few five minute breaks to go and get coffee or take a short walk, your tension should be greatly reduced. Get in touch today to find out more and about getting compensation for whiplash.
