Whiplash Injury Rehab
Whiplash typically occurs when your head is forcefully and quickly thrown backward and then forward, which typically happens in Motor vehicle accidents. This motion can injure bones in the spine, disks between the bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and other tissues of the neck.
The symptoms of a whiplash injury include neck pain, neck stiffness, difficulty moving your head, headaches, pain, and muscle spasms in the shoulders and arms.
Typical car accident injuries include:
- Muscle strain
- Joint damage
- Broken bones
- Whiplash injuries
- Back pain
- Herniated discs

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear?
On a first session, your physiotherapist has to do a thorough assessment, which involves a lot of joint movement and tests, so loose clothing at the area affected would help to do a detailed assessment. Please avoid using very tight clothing, which can affect the outcome of the assessment.
