If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Balerno after being caught up in a road traffic accident that was caused by someone else, Accident Advice Helpline can help you with a compensation claim.
Whiplash is a painful injury and one which usually clears up on its own. It’s always best to see a doctor though.
The symptoms of whiplash
The first sign of whiplash is that there is no sign. It can take a few hours before your muscles start to react and you start to feel pain.
The pain is usually centred around the neck and can go in to the shoulders and back. Painkillers can often help but your doctor may also suggest that you try to restrict your neck movements for a while. Having overstretched them once, you don’t want to stretch them again and make your whiplash injury in Balerno worse.
Being a muscle injury it often clears up after a few weeks if treated properly. Your doctor will advise the best time for you to return to work, and in some cases you may be referred to a physiotherapist.
