Have you been in a car accident recently? Or a slip and fall accident? Perhaps you received a blow to the head, for example, playing sports?
If any of the above apply to you, did you wake up the next day and feel stiffness and tenderness in your neck, as well as some pain?
You will probably, by now, recognise this as whiplash. If you went to your doctor after a car accident, you were probably not surprised that it was whiplash. You might have found it strange to receive a diagnosis of whiplash in Stoke sub Hamdon if you got injured through falling or being struck on the head.
But whiplash need not necessarily be caused by a car accident. All it needs is for sudden impact to jerk the head, which puts strain on the neck’s ligaments and tendons, causing pain, stiffness and tenderness.
What happens when you get a whiplash injury in Stoke sub Hamdon
A whiplash injury can cause you to take time off work, and you may also need some extra help during your recovery. You could need, for example, a home help to take care of the chores you can’t manage, and possibly a childminder to take the kids to school.
On top of this, you could also be paying out for prescriptions and public transport fares. Yes, whiplash is usually something that clears up within a few weeks, and needs little treatment – but it can still have a big effect on your everyday life, not to mention your wallet.
If the accident that caused your whiplash was someone else’s fault, why not consider calling Accident Advice Helpline and making a compensation claim?
