Whiplash injury in Coalville

A Man at the doctor after suffering a neck injury.

What can make neck pain more persistent?

Neck pain, whether it is caused by wear and tear or a whiplash injury in Coalville, can be more persistent than other types of pain. Neck pain can be debilitating as it makes it more difficult to work and move around freely, and persistent pain can be distressing.

The neck is connected to the spine and shoulders, so neck pain can radiate through these areas, and many people will not understand that the pain is coming from their neck, meaning that they don’t treat the source of the pain, just the symptoms. Here are some other reasons that neck pain may be more persistent than other pains.

If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Coalville which has led to persistent neck pain, you should see a doctor and try to get all of the treatment available to you. If the accident which caused your whiplash injury in Coalville was not your fault, one way to pay for expensive medical treatments, or those not available on the NHS is to make a compensation claim for your whiplash injury in Coalville.

You can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile to find out more about compensation claims, and work out whether or not your whiplash injury in Coalville has a good chance of getting you a successful claim.

Not moving enough

If you have neck pain and are finding it uncomfortable to move your neck easily, a natural thing to do is to avoid moving the neck too much to avoid pain. However, if you don’t get exercise and continue to move your neck, then the tendons and ligaments in your neck will stiffen up even further and can cause a more long lasting condition or more serious pain. This is why even those suffering from whiplash will not wear a cervical collar for more than a few hours.

Stress and tension

When we are stressed or tense, our shoulders and neck muscles become tighter as the result. If you are stressed or tense about neck pain then actually feeling these emotions can make your neck pain last longer. It is worthwhile seeing a doctor as soon as possible when suffering from neck pain as your doctor should be able to recommend treatments and offer you a diagnosis which will help you to feel less stressed and allow your muscles to relax.

Bad posture

Bad posture can give you back and neck pain in the first place, so if you have sustained an injury which caused neck pain and then continue to have bad posture, this will make your neck pain last longer and be more severe.

It is worth looking at your posture at all times, to ensure that you are sitting and standing correctly to avoid this type of pain.
