How can a whiplash injury in Peebles affect you? Perhaps the most obvious way is physically: it is painful, and affects your neck movements. But, it can also affect your everyday life and your finances.
What are the symptoms of whiplash?
Pain, stiffness, and tenderness in the neck are the most common symptoms of whiplash. They may not be experienced until several hours after the accident that leads to the whiplash injury in Peebles, or perhaps even the following day.
Some people also suffer headaches, nausea, and dizziness.
However, recovery is fairly swift. Within no more than a few weeks, a full recovery can be made with little more than rest and painkillers. It is unlikely that any complex treatments will be required.
The effect of a whiplash injury in Peebles on your lifestyle
Whiplash is quite a nuisance, though. During your recovery, you will not be able to do a lot of the things you would normally take for granted, including, perhaps, going to work.
As a result, many people who are recovering from whiplash will hire a home help, or maybe a childminder, just to make sure that everything in the household doesn’t grind to a halt.
Unfortunately, such services cost money, and if you’re off work then money may be in shorter supply than usual. This could lead to a lot of stress, which is the last thing you need when you’re recovering from an injury.
