Whiplash treatment

Suffering from whiplash may continue for years if left untreated

Whiplash is described as an acceleration-deceleration injury to the neck, but is most widely known as the injury sustained by car accident victims, especially when the victim is in a stationary car hit by another car at some speed. These types of injury cause complex issues that don’t often show up on initial scanning and investigations, and can become fully apparent over a week or two following the injury. They are not exclusive to car accidents and can happen in other kinds of traumas too, from surfing, football, skydiving, bungee jumping, skiing, general falls, bike accidents and many more.

Whiplash symptoms

Whiplash injuries can cause a wide variety of symptoms including pain and stiffness in the neck, headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, vertigo, nausea and even hearing difficulties.

All whiplash injuries are traumatic injuries, but the pain and symptoms can go on for years after the accident if the victim does not get care and treatment.
