How does whiplash to the neck occur?
A whiplash injury is sustained when the neck is extended or twisting following a sudden impact, normally when a vehicle is hit in the rear. That said a whiplash injury is not only sustained in road traffic accident, but can occur in almost any accident circumstance whether it is at work, or at home.
Another common cause of whiplash is when people are hurt playing sports or recreational activities such as rides at fairgrounds, or theme parks.
Symptoms of a whiplash injury
There are a variety of whiplash injury symptoms ranging from pain for several days after an accident, which is generally the most frequent type, to long-lasting pain, continual discomfort and limited head movement.
A protective collar is prescribed in the majority of whiplash cases together with anti inflammatory and muscle relaxing medication to ease the discomfort. In more severe circumstances an x-ray to the neck will be needed to find out if there are any fractured or broken bones.
It is not uncommon in many cases that immediately following an accident there is little or no pain felt by the victim, however in the ensuing days or even sometime later increasing discomfort and pain in the neck and shoulders materialises.
If you have been involved in an accident and have received and jolt to your neck we would recommend you seek medical advice from your doctor as soon as possible.
