What is whiplash?
As defined by the NHS, whiplash is an injury to the neck caused by the “sudden movement of the head forwards, backwards or sideways.”
This movement, often caused in impacts such as car accidents, damages the neck tendons and muscles, resulting in pain in the neck, shoulders, back and arms. Immediately after impact, your body may go into shock, but it’s common to become aware of the symptoms of whiplash once this wears off. These include:
- Pain and stiffness in the neck
- Nausea and vomiting
- Dizziness and blurred vision
- Tingling in the arms and fingers
- Back and shoulder pain
If you suspect you have whiplash, it’s important to get a formal diagnosis from a GP right away. They can prescribe anti-inflammatory medicine, along with a course of physio treatment to help mitigate any long-term damage. Once you’ve received the medical help you need, get the legal help you deserve by placing a call to Accident Advice Helpline.
