Physiotherapy Professionals Parramatta 12 Ada Street Harris Park NSW 2150: Whiplash injury after a motor vehicle accident

Whiplash injury after a motor vehicle accident

Whiplash is a condition that describes post-motor vehicle accident symptoms. Symptoms often appear several hours after the actual incident. You may experience significant muscular tension. Pain often refers up to the head. Neurological symptoms such as pins and needles and numbness can often be felt down to arms.

Why so much pain after a car accident?

At the moment of impact, force transfers through the vehicle to your body within a split of a second. Your cervical spine (neck) being the most vulnerable suffers from sprains caused by the sudden jerk. Soft tissue structures of your neck may tear from the sudden motion. The muscles around the neck spasms to guard the injured spot, causing whiplash symptoms that we have mentioned above.

Do I need rehabilitation after a car accident?

Yes. Without treatment, symptoms may worsen over time. Research shows a high number of individuals may suffer from long-term symptoms post motor vehicle accidents if they fail to receive early treatment. It is best to seek medical assistance to prevent any long-term symptoms.
