Some people do not believe how easy it is to sustain a whiplash injury in Cerne Abbas, or how painful and disabling it can be. This is because they have never experienced it themselves, because if they had they would soon change their mind.
There are so many ways that a whiplash injury in Cerne Abbas can happen, and many victims do not realise they have the problem for a day or two after the accident that caused it. It starts with a few aches and pains in your neck and for the first few days gets progressively worse.
Other problems from a whiplash injury in Cerne Abbas
Mild whiplash will clear itself in just a few weeks without much more than pain and stiffness in the neck. In fact the NHS state that on average mild whiplash heals in just 32 days.
The problems are much worse though if you have a case of chronic whiplash, and there are many other symptoms that can include:
- Lower back pain
- Dizziness and blurred vision
- Headaches and migraines
- Lack of mobility
- Pins and needles in your arms and hands
- Numbness in your arms and hands
- Anxiety and stress
Not all the symptoms will affect every victim, but some never fully recover and are left with weaknesses in their neck and back for the rest of their lives. In extreme cases, the whiplash injury heals but leaves the victim with a chronic pain syndrome. This means that for as long as they live they will be in constant pain and will not know from day to day how bad it will be.
There is no cure if they contract this condition, and managing the pain is all that can be done to try and ease their discomfort.
