The symptoms of whiplash injury
The symptoms of whiplash injury don’t always materialise immediately after the accident or incident; they often take somewhere between 6 and 12 hours to manifest themselves, and can sometimes even take as long as several days to appear.
There are several different symptoms of which you may display one or more. These include:
- Neck pain
- Reduced mobility of the neck due to pain
- Tenderness of the neck muscles
- Numbness in the arms and/or hands
- Pain and stiffness in the shoulders
- Pain and stiffness in the upper and/or lower back
- Pain in the jaw
- Pain and discomfort when swallowing
- Pins and needles in the arms and/or hands
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty concentrating
Treatment for whiplash injury
To help to treat any pain, your doctor may prescribe analgesics, or NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). If the mobility reduction and pain is quite severe, your doctor may also recommend a course of physiotherapy.
It’s actually best to move your neck as much as possible in order to retain mobility and to speed the recovery process. If you do go on a course of physiotherapy, it’s likely that your physiotherapist will also recommend some exercises you can do at home.
