Whiplash can happen when you least expect it. All that is needed is sudden impact, and this can happen in a variety of ways.
What can cause a whiplash injury in Prescot
Perhaps the commonest cause is a car accident, or road accident of some kind, but you could also get whiplash as a result of:
- A bike accident (e.g. falling off when you hit a pothole)
- A horse riding accident (e.g. if the horse suddenly bolts)
- A water sports accident (e.g. if you are surfing a particularly strong wave and you fall)
- A slip and fall accident
This is by no means an exhaustive list!
What are the symptoms of whiplash?

These symptoms are present because the neck’s tendons and ligaments have been damaged as a result of the head jerking as the result of sudden impact.
Other symptoms, such as nausea, dizziness and headaches, may also be present.
