Camden Town is a well-known district in north-west London. Three major wards in the area confirmed a population of around 24,500 in the last Census. At less than three miles from Charing Cross, it is an ideal base for many who work in central London each day. While some rely on public transport to get around, others drive. With the roads busy for much of the time, it would not be a surprise to learn the occasional accident does take place in the area. If this should happen to you, you may learn what it is like to suffer a whiplash injury in Camden Town.
Whiplash often happens when the vehicle a person is travelling in is struck from behind. If you are involved in a head-on collision, it is much less common to experience this injury.
How severe can whiplash be?
Whiplash is not a medical term, but is what most people call a sprained neck, and we all know how painful sprains can be. When a car travelling at speed comes to a sudden halt, or when a stationary car is hit by something else (especially from behind), you get a sudden jolt that can potentially lead to a whiplash injury in Camden Town.
Depending on how bad the whiplash is, it may take anything from several days to several weeks (or longer) to fully recover from it. In rare cases, some people are left with symptoms that go on for many months, although this is rare and most people do make a full recovery in time. In the meantime, though, the injury can lead to pain, headaches, stiffness, and other unpleasant symptoms as well. These can all affect the way you live your life in the meantime, as you might expect.
