Whiplash injury in Brighton

0

If ever you get a whiplash injury in Brighton caused by someone else, keep yourself as active as possible as this is the best way to help it heal. Movement might cause you some pain, and you may be a bit stiff, but don’t be put off by this, you will not make the injury any worse.

That is the current guidance for treating a whiplash injury in Brighton, and for most cases of the problem that is fine and will work. But if you have chronic whiplash there are so many other symptoms possible, that you may not feel well enough to start with, you will probably just want to rest till you feel better.

A mild or chronic whiplash injury in Brighton?

With a mild case of whiplash you will not have much more than the pain and stiffness, and as a self-limiting condition, it will heal in just a few weeks. But if you have chronic whiplash you could suffer any of the following symptoms as well:

  • Nausea and sickness
  • Dizziness and blurred vision
  • Tiredness
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Vertigo
  • Pins and needles in your arms and hands
  • Numbness in your arms and hands
  • Lower back pain
  • Lack of mobility

Whiplash gets worse over the first few days and then starts to improve, but if you are suffering from any of these other symptoms, you may not feel up to being as active as you should be.

If this is the case, you should at least do some neck exercises each day to help with the stiffness and your mobility. These other symptoms will start to disappear fairly soon and then you will be able to start moving about more.

Forget a neck brace

For many years, a neck brace was used to hold the neck in place while it healed. Although they were never recommended for long periods because they can make the stiffness worse, now they are not recommended at all if the neck injury you have sustained is a whiplash injury in Brighton. There are other neck injuries that they can be used for, but they are not good for whiplash.
