Neck Injuries often occur after a sudden impact such as a road traffic accident. Neck pain and stiffness is often worse on the day after the injury and may get progressively worse over several days following the event. If left untreated a chronic condition may occur.
Whiplash is often a self-limiting condition and will eventually get better only with effective treatment.
Price’s Back Clinic critically assess and identify the cause and extent of your injury to offer you a specific treatment programme.
Treatment is accompanied by helpful advice on work, sleep and general posture as well as tips for a speedy recovery and, in certain cases, some simple exercises to strengthen and support vulnerable areas.
Common symptoms of whiplash include:
- A stiff or painful neck or back
- Tenderness over the neck or back muscles
- Referred pain into the shoulder, arm or legs
- Pins or needles into the arm, hand, leg or feet
- Reduced and painful neck and back movements
If you are experiencing any symptoms after a whiplash incident please seek medical advice as soon as possible.
