Whiplash injury in Caersws

0

Causes of whiplash

Whiplash can be caused by any impact or trauma that causes the head to effectively be “whipped” back and forth.

When this takes place, the muscles and tendons underneath become strained, inflamed and sore. It is common for whiplash to develop after a car accident such as a head-on, rear-end or multi-car collision. Even a relatively minor accident at slow speed can lead to whiplash, as can other accidents entirely. Any time the muscles and tendons in the neck are hyperextended, whiplash can occur.

Whiplash symptoms

This stretching and tearing of the muscles and tendons can leave the sufferer in chronic pain, nursing a number of unpleasant side effects.

While they may take a few hours to develop due to the body going into shock immediately following the accident, when the symptoms develop, they are easy to recognise:

  • Immobility, inflammation and pain when moving around
  • Tenderness in the neck area
  • Pain in the shoulders and back
  • Tingling in the arms and hands

If you think you have sustained a whiplash injury in Caersws, seek prompt medical attention for a formal diagnosis. To treat whiplash, your doctor may recommend icing the injury and keeping the neck immobile. This will help to reduce the swelling, as will anti-inflammatory medications. Depending on the severity of your injury, your doctor may also recommend that you wear a neck brace to keep the neck still in the early stages of recovery. Massage or ultrasound therapy, chiropractic treatment and physiotherapy may also be prescribed.
