Out riding your cycle on a nice sunny afternoon, you hit a pothole and get thrown from your bike. Apart from a few grazes you feel OK, so after checking your cycle is OK continue with your ride. Next morning you wake up and can hardly move your neck and it is very painful. This is typical of a whiplash injury in Bracknell that you have sustained through no fault of your own.
There has been a big delivery at work, just a few minutes before home time. To speed things up the bosses asks some other members of staff to help in the warehouse to get the goods inside has he does not want them left out overnight.
The boxes are much heavier then you thought, and while lifting one you feel a bit of a crick in your neck. You have not been trained in lifting heavy goods, but do no think too much of it. Later that evening, after sitting watching TV, you find your neck and back have gone stiff and as you try to move you cannot believe how bad the pain is. This sounds like another whiplash injury in Bracknell.
Sitting at a zebra crossing letting an elderly person cross, you felt your car shake and hear a bang as another car hits the back of yours. After examining the damage to both cars, and accepting the other driver’s apology, you exchange details so that you can have your car repaired. About six hours later you notice you neck is aching a little, as the day goes on it gets worse, and your mobility seems to be affected. You have just sustained a whiplash injury in Bracknell in the most common way of all.
