Whiplash Neck Strain Injury

Whiplash Neck Strain Injury


Hi, this is Dana Ranahan from Body Work Sports
Physiotherapy, and today I want to talk about car accidents. We’ve had a lot of snow in the Vancouver area
the last few days. And a lot of people stayed at home with some
snow days, which was great, but it’s also been a bit treacherous out there on the roads. So we know that many of you may have had some
fender benders or car accidents and hoping that you’re not injured too much if that’s
the case. If so, what commonly can happen as you can
get kind of whipping action of your head and neck and develop a bit of a whiplash. So if you’re having neck pain or headaches
or nausea, any symptoms like that or back pain, definitely it’s worth getting it checked
out and getting a little bit of treatment to help you out. Basic principles would be to use some ice
and take some rest for a couple of days, but don’t stop moving, as long as you can avoid
pain. Just doing some easy range of movement and
taking it easy are the beginning steps to help you recovering from a whiplash like injury. So we wish you well. We hope you’ve been safe on the roads. If you have more questions about how to take
care of yourself after an injury, please give us a call or check out our website at www.body-works.ca
