Whiplash

The distortion of the cervical spine (whiplash) is the most common injury of the cervical spine in hyperflexion/hyperextension, without significant damage to the nerve roots and the core.

Early rehabilitation treatment is aimed at the reduction of pain and muscle contractures following the trauma, through the use of analgesic therapies such as laser, tens, hyperthermia, manual therapy for muscle decontraction and early recovery of the range of motion.

Subsequently, the treatment protocol provides postural exercises for the recovery of muscle control and proper postural advice for the cervical spine. This can be achieved through strengthening exercises of the weakened muscles and stretching of the muscles that are of increased tone.

Rehabilitation should advance proprioceptive exercises to help restore vestibular function, orientation and spatial awareness of the head. This should be challenged in a sport specific environment.
