Whiplash: Home Care

November 3rd, 2011

If your whiplash happened because of a minor injury and there is no serious damage, it is still a good idea to get in to see a doctor. In this case, your doctor will likely recommend self-care measures in addition to treatment such as:

  • Keeping your neck moving to prevent stiffness
  • Promptly returning to your daily routine
  • Sleeping on a firm and supportive pillow
  • Icing the affected area on a regular basis
