Whiplash treatment

Treatment for whiplash injury sustained in a car accident used to involved immobilising the neck with a cervical collar. However early mobilisation is now encouraged, although a soft collar may be used for a short period. Pain medication, anti-inflammatory drugs, and muscle relaxants may be prescribed. Severe injury may still be treated with a surgical collar, cervical traction, heat or ice. Whiplash injury treatment rarely requires surgery. People who have suffered a whiplash injury are encouraged to resume their normal daily routine as soon as possible - although avoiding certain physical activities that may aggravate the injury, as people who stay active and exercise their necks, despite the pain, typically recover more quickly.
