    Whiplash injury in Ranworth


    Ranworth Broads are an ideal place to see the wildlife of the Norfolk wetlands, especially water birds. The Norfolk Broads are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and are one of the most extensive and most important such habitats in the British Isles, home to not only indigenous species, but attracting migrants also. Great flocks of geese and ducks fly in from northern climes to overwinter in the milder British Isles. But Ranworth is not only home to water birds and waders. Foxley Wood boasts a magnificent display of bluebells in the early summer, along with primroses and other traditional native flora. Lolly Moor is an invigorating open space, bordered by woodlands and criss-crossed with streams. There are many sights to see in this part of the UK, and many activities to indulge in, such as dyke dipping, boating and bird watching.

    Why would I get a whiplash injury in Ranworth?

    We sincerely hope you don’t, but if you did, it may be your reason for visiting this page, or it could be you are researching on behalf of a family member or friend. Whiplash injury from a rowing boating accident is unlikely, although if you fell from a boat, and fell badly, it is quite possible to sustain one. It means a sore and tender neck, and restricted movement. Whiplash injury usually means it is very painful for the victim to lie, sit or stand. This is because the neck tendons have been overstretched and the sufferer has to wait until they return to normal. The best treatment for a whiplash injury sustained in Ranworth is painkillers and rest. You should also see you doctor to check for any hidden injuries. Most people recover within a few weeks from whiplash, but if you have had complications, you may need specialist treatment. Complications include headaches or migraines, which persist, trouble with vision, pins and needles, stiffness or pains in the arms and shoulders. Dizziness and nausea can also be symptoms of deeper damage. If you suffer any of these, refer to your GP once again.
