Whiplash Associated Disorder (WAD) is a term used to describe a set of symptoms that can occur after a person experiences a sudden and forceful movement of their head and neck, often in a car accident. This movement can result in damage to the soft tissues in the neck, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. The symptoms of WAD commonly include:
Some people may also experience shoulder pain, back pain, or tingling and numbness in the arms and hands.
WAD is classified into four grades:
Treatment for WAD depends on the severity of the symptoms, but typically includes physiotherapy, chiropractic care, massage therapy, pain medication, and/or exercises to improve range of motion and strength in the neck and shoulders. In some cases, a neck brace or cervical collar may be recommended to provide support and restrict movement while the soft tissues heal.
It is important to seek prompt medical attention if you experience symptoms of WAD after a car accident or other trauma to the neck. Starting physiotherapy as soon as possible can help to promote faster healing and improve long-term outcomes.
