Whiplash Physiotherapy | Move Physiotherapy Fremantle
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries following a car accident. It involves a rapid and forceful forward and backward movement of the neck. This results in a considerable amount of pain, and muscle spasm as the muscles of the neck look to protect spinal structures.
It is common for someone suffering from whiplash feel no pain immediately following an accident, however, considerable pain and stiffness often occurs 24-48 hours after the initial trauma. Other symptoms may include headaches and migraines, and radicular pain that can extend into the back or down the arms – depending on the severity of the accident.
We often hear that whiplash can become a long-term debilitation injury, however, many of these injuries can resolve completely within a few weeks with appropriate physiotherapy intervention. Your intervention will often include a combination of treatment modalities including massage therapy, dry needling and exercise rehabilitation.
