Whiplash injuries may vary in severity. Some people in the same accident can have serious injuries to the spine, nerves, muscles and ligaments while others are unaffected. Early advice and treatment is vital to prevent the pain and inflammation from worsening after the accident.
Advice and early treatment can settle the stiffness and pain immediately after the accident. Active physio treatment, mobilisations and stretching exercises is added in as the neck recovers and the pain settles. Full range of movement, without pain is the goal with these neck injuries.
