There are so many myths circulating about whiplash that you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s almost impossible to distinguish between what’s true and what’s false!

Busting some myths about whiplash
“Whiplash is a very serious injury and you never recover from it.”
Not true! Most cases of whiplash injury in Shere are not serious and the sufferer will heal fully within a matter of weeks.
“The pain and stiffness in your neck starts straight away, as soon as the accident happens.”
In fact, the symptoms of whiplash do not normally show up until several hours after the accident that caused the injury. Sometimes, it takes a day or two for this to happen.
“You have to get complete rest for ages after the accident.”
You probably need to rest for a few days, but you can reintroduce normal activities, provided you don’t do anything too strenuous.
“A whiplash injury in Shere is always caused by a car accident.”
This is definitely not true. In fact, whiplash injury can happen when you do pretty much any activity. Vehicle accidents are the most common cause, yes – but they are by no means the only way of sustaining a whiplash injury.
