  • Pain or numbness in the arm and/or hand
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in the ears or blurred vision

Diagnosis

Most whiplash injuries are due to damage to soft tissues such as the discs, muscles and ligaments. These cannot be seen on standard X-rays so your doctor may need to request other forms of scans such as CT or MRI. In the past whiplash injuries were often treated by splinting the neck in a soft collar. However research shows early movement and treatment within your comfort levels leads to much faster and efficient recovery. In the first 24 hours gentle active movement is encouraged. When you come for your initial appointment at Physio Parramatta, we will provide you with a series of exercises that you can do at home. An early return to work is encouraged, even if your doctor must prescribe some temporary modifications in your work situation.

Physio Parramatta has a proven and effective treatments for whiplash injuries including relieving headaches, using hands-on techniques to restore normal movement and relieve pain, exercises to regain normal strength and length of muscles, and massage to reduce muscle tension. We will also discuss and advise you on your gradual return to normal activity, exercise and work. A major focus of the treatment of whiplash associated disorders is specific exercises designed to restore muscle control and support around the neck whilst also improving postural control and preventing unnecessary postural strain.
