Whiplash Disorders

Whiplash injuries/disorders are most commonly caused by impact trauma and are often seen as a result of car accidents. Whiplash is caused by the body being carried forward causing the head to flip back – then, as the body stops, the head is thrown forwards. There is often a delay before you feel any pain or stiffness from whiplash.

Many different tissues are injured in this situation, giving symptoms in several areas of the body. Symptoms reported by sufferers include: pain and aching of the neck and back, referred pain to the shoulders, sensory disturbance (such as pins and needles) to the arms & legs and headaches.

Although whiplash can badly damage your neck, for most people these injuries improve within a few weeks or months.

Whiplash is a common injury presenting in Pure Physiotherapy clinics. Physiotherapy can help aid recovery by advising you on appropriate exercises, performing manual techniques, massaging soft tissues, correcting your posture and assisting in pain relief.

"I've never know pain like Sciatica. Following a referral made by my doctor, I was seen by a really friendly physiotherapist. I can't believe the difference in 4 sessions - Many thanks."
Miss C White
"I was told by a previous physio that nothing could be done for my ankle problem and I would never play football again. Having received expert treatment and by following a specific programme, I have returned to 5-a-side once a week."
Mr J Arthur
"I have never had acupuncture before and I can't believe the difference it has made for my chronic back pain. I am now able to control the symptoms and have got back my normal life."
Mrs Hacker
"My back is 100% better now. I can't believe how much improvement a few sessions can make. Thanks so much!!"
