Whiplash is the most common word used after a road traffic accident. But what is it and why?
Whiplash is the term used to describe a neck injury caused by a sudden movement of the head forwards, backwards or sideways. It often occurs after a road traffic accident where the sudden impact causes vigorous movement of the head that damages the ligaments and tendons in the neck.
Common symptoms include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Tenderness of the neck muscles
- Reduced and painful neck movements
You may not feel the symptoms straight away as they often take a while (up to 48 hours) to develop. The neck pain and stiffness is often worse the day after the accident and it may get worse for several days afterwards.
