If you were to sustain a whiplash injury in Sherborne, how would you go about recovering from it? Would you:
a) Wear a neck brace and get complete rest for several weeks?
b) Take no action and wait for it to go away on its own?
c) Get it checked out by your GP, take it easy for a bit and get some gentle exercise?
The best answer to the above is “C”. Contrary to popular belief, a neck brace is not required when recovering from whiplash injury!
But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you shouldn’t seek medical advice. In fact, at Accident Advice Helpline, we would urge you to visit your GP, who will be able to diagnose whiplash easily – and check whether you have any other injuries.
