Do you need expert claims advice for a whiplash accident?
A whiplash injury in Bradworthy can have some upsetting effects on your life. Often when victims find that they cannot do the simple things in life for themselves they are used to – for any period – there can be a major impact on quality of life.
When this is coupled with related problems like trouble sleeping because of discomfort, this can exacerbate the condition further, and lead to depression, as well as other psychological effects.
A whiplash injury in Bradworthy can cause many other problems as well, some of which you would not normally associate with a neck injury. When you start to feel dizzy and your vision is blurred, you would not always relate it to your whiplash injury in Bradworthy, but this is a common side effect of the injury and sometimes victims suffer from vertigo as well.
A lack of mobility from a whiplash injury in Bradworthy
A stiff neck making it difficult to move is more the sort of effect you would expect, and sometimes the lower back becomes difficult to move as well. This is on top of the pain in these two areas, for which painkillers are often prescribed.
The lack of mobility you can help with yourself by making sure you have some gentle, low impact, exercise each day, in fact it is now thought that the more active you are when you have a whiplash injury, the quicker it will heal.
This can be easier said than done though, when you are in constant pain, keep getting headaches and feelings of nausea, all you want to do is rest, which is also quite important to allow the soft tissues in your neck to heal. Finding a balance between rest and exercise is the answer, and that will vary from victim to victim, partly depending on the severity of their injury.

When you have a whiplash injury it is not just your neck you need to exercise. If someone else caused your injury, you also need to exercise your legal right to compensation.
