Whiplash, the DO’s and DON’TS!

DO MOVE!
Keep your neck mobile and continuing with your normal activities!

DON’T BE AFRAID TO MOVE
Using a neck brace or collar stops mobility of the neck and therefore this is not recommended!

DO MANAGE YOUR PAIN
Painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen will help along with movement– stronger painkillers are available on prescription from your GP if these don’t help

DON’T SUFFER
Seek professional input from physiotherapy, which will get you back on track with home exercises and stretches

DON’T SEEK SURGERY OR INJECTIONS
To have Painkilling injections and surgery aren’t normally any use for whiplash.

DO ACT QUICKLY
Make sure you keep moving (your body especially your neck loves it!) as soon as you feel stiffness or tightness settling in, that the prompt to move, especially after sleep or staying in one position for a prolonged time.
