On this page, our Physiotherapists at Pure have worked collaboratively to compile a series of exercise rehabilitation plans which we recommend performing at home for help with your recovery.
The exercises are categorised in to different stages based on the current symptoms you are experiencing and the level of progress you have made in your recovery and rehabilitation journey.
The early plan is designed to maintain flexibility of the soft tissues in the neck and to keep the deep neck flexor muscles active which are important for support and posture. The intermediate template aims to mobilise the tissues of the neck and upper back to reduce and built-up tension which can arise from a whiplash injury. Lastly, the advanced programme is designed to strengthen the muscles of the neck and upper back to increase resilience in the area, preventing future injury and developing greater work capacity for physical tasks.

Please click here to be re-directed to our YouTube channel playlist for video demonstrations of each exercise recommended for whiplash. Ensure you pay attention to the specific level of the exercises you have been prescribed (early, intermediate or advanced) and view only those videos so that you perform the correct exercises.
Although these exercises are recommended by us, we advise that you liaise with your Physiotherapist before attempting any exercises you have not been recommended.
If you experience continual worsening of pain/symptoms whilst performing any prescribed exercises, we recommended that you stop and contact your Physiotherapist.
