how to treat an old whiplash injury
I'm wondering if you guys can help. My mum was in an accident about a year ago, where the mini bus slip on the road due to ice being on the road. She was flung forward in her seat. The bus slipped in total twice and on the second time the bus did a 360 circle on the road.
Since then, my mother has been complaining about a sore/tight neck for a long time and it has been gradually got worse of the last couple of months. I believe that she has had an untreated case of whip lash which has now become an old injury. I have tried to get her to see a physio to try to diagnose her injury and have failed miserably each time I recommend her to go and see one.
I would be interested in seeking your views on how to treat this and what sort of things you would try. And would it be better for my mum to see a physio who specialises in lumbar spine injuries or specifically someone who deals with neck and shoulders? Some other issues for consideration is that she has slight osteoporosis and poor muscle mass.
