Whiplash occurs due to a sudden backward and forward jolting of the head causing damage to the structures supporting the neck.
This injury is usually the result of a motor vehicle accident or some level of acute trauma. Left untreated, whiplash can lead to ongoing
· Neck pain
It is common for whiplash injuries to be accompanied with several deficits along the joints and muscles of the neck. A wide range of treatments will be used to
· Decrease muscular spasm and pain
· Decrease inflammation
· Restore range of motion
· Strengthen the muscles of the neck.
Our physiotherapists have a wealth of experience in this area, with our head physiotherapist Andrew Noyes, specialising in the treatment of neck and headache related issues.
