Whiplash is a painful injury to suffer, so it is understandable that many people are looking to recover from it as quickly as possible. As whiplash is predominantly a muscle strain injury, there is no 'whiplash cure'. Nevertheless, there are certain things that can be done to aid and quicken recovery and these will be discussed below. However, we always recommend that professional medical advice is sought and followed for all cases of whiplash.

The early stages of whiplash

When the pain first arrives in the earliest stages of whiplash, then this can be combated with over the counter painkillers. Ice can also be placed on the neck – wrapped in a cloth of course – to help with the pain and any swelling.

Regaining full neck movement

Many people are under the mistaken belief that the best treatment for whiplash is to completely rest the neck and stop movement by using a neck collar. Although it is important to not put too much strain on the neck, complete lack of movement could actually make recovery go slower.

Simple and gentle neck movements are suggested by many to help alleviate whiplash quicker. An example of this would be to slowly move the neck in every direction a few times. Such a small exercise performed regularly could help bring back full neck movement.

Although not a whiplash cure, these methods may speed up recovery.
