Non-mobilisation of a whiplash injury no longer thought appropriate

Sustaining a whiplash injury is painful and frustrating, especially when someone else is to blame. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and it can be proven that someone else was negligent, then The Claim Solicitors can help you to claim the compensation that you are legally entitled to. Whiplash is damage to the deep soft tissue in the neck and upper back. It is caused by a violent movement of the head during the impact of a car accident.

Treatment of a whiplash injury
If you have sustained a whiplash injury then should be treated quickly to prevent symptoms from persisting for any length of time. Traditionally whiplash sufferers were given a cervical collar to immobilise the neck. These days medical practitioners are more likely to suggest early mobilisation, the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants and gentle exercise after a few days. Physiotherapy may also be used in some case. This can reduce muscle spasms caused by the whiplash injury and can increase circulation and encourage healing. If you are suffering from depression as a result of your accident, or insomnia, your GP will be able to help.

If your symptoms last longer than six weeks or new symptoms related to whiplash appear then your case may be re-evaluated. Severe whiplash may involve damage to the intervertebral discs, if this is the case your GP may consider referring you for surgery, although this is rare.
