Whiplash is an injury to the neck and upper back and is frequently caused by a car accident when your car is hit from behind by another vehicle.The injury is caused by the force of the head being thrown forward and then backwards upon impact. In a whiplash injury, damage is caused to the soft tissue in the neck and the upper back. It causes pain in these areas as well as numbness and tingling in the arms and hands. It can also result in depression and insomnia. Fortunately for sufferers the symptoms normally only last a few days. However in rare cases people can experience pain for up to two years.
How a whiplash injury is treated
Whiplash is treated with anti-inflammatory drugs which may be prescribed by your GP. Early mobility is recommended as opposed to immobilising the neck, a treatment which was used frequently in the past. Cold compresses can also be used to ease the pain.
