Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Machrihanish? You will not be the first person to suffer a whiplash injury. Indeed many people will and have sustained a whiplash injury in this area. It is a common injury that people regularly suffer when they are involved in a vehicle collision.
The symptoms of whiplash injury
You might not notice you have whiplash until several hours after the accident. Whiplash causes restricted movement, stiffness and pain in the neck.
It can also lead to dizziness, headaches, muscle spasms, and discomfort in the shoulders and/or arms. Whiplash basically means the ligaments in your neck have been sprained. Sprain injuries can take six months or more to heal completely. If symptoms persist beyond a six month period, it is called chronic whiplash.
Prolonged symptoms of whiplash can lead to depression.
