Whiplash is the common name for neck and back sprains, the pain which can often radiate down the spine. The injury is referred to as “whiplash” due to the neck or back being thrown forwards and/or backwards at rapid speed. However it is possible for whiplash injuries to occur even in low speed collisions.
Whiplash causes the fibres of the neck muscles to tear, resulting in pain and often a decreased range of movement.
Whiplash is most commonly associated with car accidents however the injury can be sustained in many other ways, including falls from bicycles or horses.
We have helped hundreds of people make successful No Win, No Fee claims enabling them to rebuild their lives following whiplash injuries.
It is very important to attend your G.P. as soon as any symptoms of whiplash present themselves.
Whiplash can be debilitating and can entail the following symptoms:
1. Pain and aching to the neck and back, radiated pain to the shoulders.
2. Sensory disturbance (such as pins and needles) to the arms & legs.
3. Restrictive head movement.
