Whiplash Claims

Whiplash Symptoms

Whiplash symptoms of stiff neck, neck pain, back pain, lower back pain and shoulder pain are the most commonly sustained in a car accident and referred to as soft tissue injury. Therefore, many accident and whiplash claims for these whiplash symptoms arise out of car accidents in Grimsby and Louth areas in Lincolnshire.

A common example of a whiplash injury is where a car is hit by another car from behind i.e. a rear end shunt car accident, causing whiplash symptoms to the driver and/or passengers. This is because the neck and back are suddenly jolted forwards and then backwards often resulting in neck and back pain.

Whiplash symptoms can also be headache and back pain causes, cause joint pain and even stroke symptoms, tinnitus and minor brain injury.

Symptoms can come on immediately after the accident or it could take several days for them to develop and may get worse over time before starting to get better.

Treatment Of Whiplash Symptoms

Whiplash injury can be treated in a number of different ways; painkillers and anti inflammatory medicine can reduce symptoms of stiff neck, headaches, neck pain, back pain, lower back pain and shoulder pain. However, check with your GP or a pharmacist first before taking any medication.

Resting pain in neck might be advisable at first, however, gentle neck exercises may avoid a stiff neck and also bring lower back pain relief.
