Image for Whiplash

Whiplash injuries are most often seen as a result of car accidents, although other activities or falls that cause rapid acceleration and deceleration of the body can cause it also. Such an injury is caused by the body being carried forward, causing the head to flip back.

Then, as the body stops, the head is thrown forwards. These forces may result in painful injuries to the muscles, ligaments and joints of the neck and other spinal areas. However, sometimes they result in no injury or pain at all.The joints and ligaments of the neck are covered by muscles. So the injury cannot be seen from the surface. This can be frustrating when your neck is painful.

If your pain continues, please visit our Leeds or Guiseley clinic and see one of our physiotherapists.
