Whiplash

Whiplash is a term used to describe injuries of the neck that are a result of an acceleration – deceleration incident, such as a car accident where a car is rear-ended. The neck is hyper extended and flexed at high velocities causing stretching of the muscles and ligaments that provide stability and control for the neck.

Symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, headaches, muscle spasm, arm pain, pins and needles or numbness.

Early management of these injuries is vital to prevent long-term neck pain and dysfunction that occurs in the muscles. Your musculoskeletal or sports physiotherapist can assess and treat your neck; guiding you through a full rehabilitation programme. Your treatment may involve soft tissue techniques, joint mobilisations, strengthening of the deep neck muscles, taping and ergonomic advice.
