Whiplash Injury in New Malden


Here’s a question for you: which of the following three scenarios can cause a whiplash injury in New Malden?

  • You are sitting at some traffic lights, when the car behind sets off too quickly, and you get a rear-end shunt
  • You are playing rugby, and your head is on the receiving end of the ball, which has been thrown with great force
  • You are at work, walking along a corridor, and you slip and fall on the surface, which has been polished

The answer is: all three!

It’s not just car accidents

That’s right – any of the above can cause whiplash.  Yes, most people would immediately have a guess at the first situation, perhaps because whiplash is a common result in a car accidents, however minor they may be.

But all that is needed is some kind of sudden impact, which causes the head to jerk, and thereby causes the ligaments and tendons in the neck to be put under strain.

What to do if you get a whiplash injury in New Malden

If are any of these things happen to you, the first thing to do is get yourself down to your doctor’s surgery or to the casualty department of your hospital, and get checked out.  You may have other injuries in addition to whiplash.

The whiplash itself may not become apparent until several hours after the accident.  The symptoms are usually pain, tenderness, and stiffness.  Some people experience headaches, nausea, and dizziness, too.
