The consequences of a whiplash injury in Michaelwood
A whiplash injury can be caused in hundreds of different ways. Although most people will think that it comes from two cars crashing, anything that causes a sudden jolt to your head can create this sprain in your neck. For most sufferers it will heal itself in just a few weeks, but for others it can take months. It is not usually apparent immediately after an accident and is often the next day before the symptoms start to appear. It can be very painful, but in the first few days sufferers can also experience:
- Pins and needles in the arms and hands
- Stiffness to the neck and shoulders
- Lower back pain
Some people never fully recover from whiplash and are left with a weakness in their backs and necks.
