Whiplash Injury Claim

Whiplash injury is linked to a painful neck injury that usually happens after a car accident. Typically in claims we deal with, it is a term connected to a soft tissue injury that is caused by an abrupt movement to the neck, head and shoulders, such as seen in a car accident.

Symptoms Of Whiplash Injury

Victims of a whiplash injury can find that the symptoms can last for a few days, several weeks or sometimes months. The main symptom is the mobility problems with stiffness in the affected area but some whiplash injuries can affect the victim in other ways. Symptoms can vary in the severity of pain, where one victim may suffer a dull ache in the neck and the shoulder areas, and another may claim to experience a sharper pain when moving the affected area over a longer range. Other factors for more serious whiplash injuries include headaches, insomnia, depression and emotional imbalance.

Whiplash Injury Claim Assessment For Compensation

Whiplash symptoms are not always immediately felt after the accident, and victims can often develop a whiplash symptom within a few days of the accident. However, if you have suffered from a whiplash injury then you will need to recuperate with effective physiotherapy and medical treatment to enable a complete recovery. Whiplash injury can become a long term issue, particularly when left too long before treatment. Therefore, it is really in the best interest of the victim to contact 101% Compensation for medical assessment to be arranged immediately to access treatment which the victim needs for a whiplash injury.

How To Treat Whiplash

A minor whiplash injury will usually heal by itself, although the time it takes will vary from individual to individual. When you seek medical attention for this type of soft tissue injury, there are several ways to treat it and is dependent on the severity of the damage. See the following list of how to treat a whiplash injury:

1. Apply Ice Pack

Placing an ice pack to the injury can help with pain and reduce swelling. This should be done as soon as possible. It is recommended that you apply every 3-4 hours for 15 minutes intervals. Never place the ice pack directly to the skin as it can cause more problems. Instead, wrap it in a cloth or a towel.

2. Neck Support

A doctor may advise that you wear a neck brace or collar to allow recovery and to support your neck. This is a short term solution until your neck muscles are strong enough to hold the head up.

3. Medicine

Your doctor may prescribe painkillers to help reduce pain. The common types are the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs which can also reduce swelling. You may know them as Ibuprofen or Naproxen. Your GP will know which type is suitable for you based on your medical background and if necessary, the medical professional may provide stronger painkillers or drugs that can relax your muscles.

4. Heat Application

This is only suitable if the initial swelling has subsided. The doctor may recommend that you use a heat pack or to keep the area warm.

5. Ultrasound

For more extreme cases, ultrasound is an option which reduces swelling and pain by increasing blood circulation through sound waves.

6. Deep Tissue Massage

This whiplash treatment is aimed to target muscle tension. Direct pressure and friction is applied by a qualified therapist to try to release the tension in your soft tissues. It is often branded as a popular home method to speed up healing.
