Treatment for Whiplash

Whiplash is a common injury that occurs when the neck is suddenly forced forward and then backward, causing damage to the soft tissues in the neck. While the symptoms of whiplash often appear immediately, it is not uncommon for some people to experience a delayed onset of symptoms.

If you been in an accident, suffered a neck injury, or have neck pain book an appointment with a physiotherapist for treatment.

Symptoms

The symptoms for whiplash and delayed whiplash are the same, except for one is delayed. The symptoms could appear immediately or several days or even weeks after the initial incident. This delay can make it difficult to identify the cause of the symptoms and can make it harder to receive proper treatment.

Common symptoms may include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness, and difficulty concentrating

These symptoms can have a significant impact on your daily life, and it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible to properly diagnose and treat your condition.
