If you sustain a whiplash injury in Brancaster Staithe, you could be laid low for a few weeks until it heals, or it could be several months if you have a case of chronic whiplash.
For many years it was thought that the best way to treat a whiplash injury in Brancaster Staithe was complete rest, and maybe the use of a neck brace to keep your neck still.
It has now been realised though that the more active you are when you have this type of injury, the quicker it will get better, and the use of neck braces is no longer recommended, except in very extreme cases, and then its use has to be restricted.
How your whiplash injury in Brancaster Staithe might have happened
Whiplash injuries have been around forever, they are so easily sustained. Any sudden jolt to your head can damage the tendons and ligaments in your neck this creates the pain of a whiplash injury in Brancaster Staithe.
It could happen in a road traffic accident, an accident at work or maybe in a slip, trip or fall accident, but whichever way it has happened, if it was the fault of someone else, you could be entitled to compensation.
If you are in pain immediately after an accident, it is unlikely to be whiplash as this usually takes a few hours to start. Often it is after a night’s sleep that the victim wakes up to find they are having trouble moving their neck and feel full of aches and pains.
The injury usually gets progressively worse over the next few days, but as a self-limiting injury, it will then start to heal itself.
