Whiplash: the basic facts
Whiplash is a neck injury. Specifically, it is damage to the neck’s tendons and ligaments, which are put under strain when the head jerks upon sudden impact.
This sudden impact is why many cases of whiplash injury in Parton occur as a result of car accidents. However, road traffic accidents are not the only cause. As long as there is sudden impact that causes a sharp head movement, the risk of whiplash is there.
Some hours after the accident, or perhaps the next day, the symptoms become apparent: pain, stiffness, and tenderness in most cases. Some people also experience nausea, headaches, and dizziness.
Happily, most cases of whiplash heal completely after a few weeks. Diagnosis is simple, and you are unlikely to have to undergo any complex tests or procedures. Recovery, too, is uncomplicated, requiring little more than rest and painkillers, taken as directed by your GP.
