The beautiful village of St Agnes, on the North Cornwall coast, is a place that offers a great deal of things for people to do. Residents and tourists alike can enjoy surfing, kayaking, and walks on the beach – even trips to tin mines, too!
But you need to be careful, because such activities carry the risk of sustaining a whiplash injury in St Agnes.
How is whiplash caused?
Whiplash can happen in any situation in which you experience a sudden impact. This can cause your head to jerk, which in turn puts a strain on the neck’s tendons and ligaments.
A few hours later, or even perhaps a day later, if this has happened to you, you could feel pain, stiffness and tenderness in your neck. You could also have a headache, dizziness, and nausea.
What should you do if you think you have suffered a whiplash injury in St Agnes?
The first thing you should do is go and see your GP, or seek medical advice from a hospital if you are really worried. Usually, a doctor’s appointment is sufficient, and a doctor can make a diagnosis of whiplash very easily. There is no need for complex tests.
What do you need to do after that?
Get some rest and take some painkillers if you need to. You will be pleased to know that most cases of whiplash clear up within a few weeks, and require little more than rest and medication. You can do some gentle exercise when the worst of the pain is over – despite what you may see on TV, a neck brace is not a good idea!
