whiplashA neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip. Whiplash is commonly caused by rear-end car accidents. But whiplash can also result from sports accidents, physical abuse and other types of traumas, such as a fall. Whiplash may be called a neck sprain or strain, but these terms also include other types of neck injuries. Most people with whiplash get better within a few weeks by following a treatment plan that includes pain medication and exercise. However, some people have chronic neck pain and other long-lasting complications.We will assist with range-of-motion exercises and pain management. Physiotherapy will help you feel better, reduce pain and may prevent further injury. Your physiotherapist will guide you through exercises to strengthen your muscles, improve posture and restore normal movement.In some cases, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) may be used. TENSapplies a mild electric current to the skin.
