Whiplash Associated Disorders

Whiplash usually occurs as the result of a sudden injury, most commonly a motor vehicle accident, a sports injury or a slip and fall. Whiplash is most frequently experienced as neck pain, but can also be pain in the face/jaw, upper or lower back and even occasionally the arms. When other symptoms appear they are labelled whiplash associated disorder. Other symptoms that occur may include dizziness, ringing or buzzing in the ears, vision problems, and difficulties with memory, sleeping and concentration. Massage therapy can help treat the underlying soft tissue injuries.
