    Whiplash injury from a car crash in Stafford


    Whiplash is often seen as a minor injury, possibly due to it being a fairly common result of a car accident.

    But anyone who has suffered from a whiplash injury from a car crash in Stafford will tell you that the painful and debilitating nature of a whiplash injury is anything but minor.

    Whiplash is not a single injury, contrary to popular opinion. Whiplash is in fact a medical umbrella term relation to a variety of injuries to the neck caused in a similar way.

    How is whiplash caused?

    Whiplash occurs when a rapid acceleration-deceleration force cause the head to be thrown backwards and forwards or from left to right in swift succession.

    This quick movement causes extra strain to be put on the neck, a force that the neck cannot normally handle.

    This strain causes damage to ligaments and tendons and it is this kind of injury that is referred to as whiplash.

    Do I have a whiplash injury from a car crash in Stafford?

    Whiplash can have various symptoms, some of which are fairly logical, but others are a little more unexpected. It is worth knowing all of these symptoms in case you suffer a neck injury, especially from a car crash:

    • Restricted movement caused by stiffness in the neck and back
    • Pain in the neck, back and head
    • Loss of one or more senses, either completely or partially
    • Memory loss
    • Pain in one or both arms
    • Problems with speech
    • Sporadic unconsciousness
    • Drowsiness

    It is possible that some or all of these symptoms will not be instantly apparent. Whiplash symptoms sometimes take some time to show and this can be extended if you are suffering stress and trauma from the car accident you were involved in.

    Due to this it is important that you seek immediate medical attention after a car accident to ensure you do not worsen your injury inadvertently.
