Whiplash is an injury which is synonymous with car accidents or road traffic collisions involving multiple vehicles.  However, Whiplash is not exclusively related to these types of everyday accidents.  It can occur after other common accidents, where the neck becomes damaged by trauma.

Causes of Whiplash

Whiplash may be caused by:

  1. Road traffic collisions including rear end shunts
  2. Riding accidents
  3. Motorcycle accidents
  4. Winter sports accidents
  5. Water sports accidents
  6. Heavy contact sports such as boxing and rugby
  7. Cycling accidents
  8. Slips, trips and falls, especially from height

Whiplash

Whiplash is defined as an injury to the soft tissues of the neck which support and allow the neck to move in different planes. Ligaments and tendons are delicate tissues which, although strong, can easily tear and become damaged if the neck is violently jolted suddenly in a different direction.

How Does Whiplash Develop?

Whiplash is an injury which is rarely diagnosed at the scene of an accident or incident, as it usually takes a number of hours to develop and become painful.  Commonly, symptoms appear within 6-12 hours following an injury and this is when most cases of Whiplash are diagnosed by medical practitioners.

What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Whiplash can take time to develop and symptoms may include:

  • Pain and discomfort across the neck and shoulders
  • Stiffness and inability to move neck and head in all directions
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia
  • Listlessness
  • Depression if left untreated

How is Whiplash Treated?

After a thorough medical examination of the neck, Whiplash is diagnosed and treated in the first instance with rest and painkillers such as anti-inflammatory medicines.  These can allow the tissues to settle and any inflammation to subside.  A neck brace may be offered to support the neck and allow for limited movement.  However, this should not be relied upon, as it can limit recovery and cause stiffness of the muscles to develop.

Sensible exercise should be undertaken to allow the ligaments and tendons to heal.  If symptoms persist for a long period of time, then it may be advisable to contact a Physiotherapist for treatment.
