Whiplash Injuries Compensation

Whiplash Injuries Compensation: Claim to aid rehabilitation

Those genuinely injured in a road traffic accident that need to make a claim for whiplash injuries compensation, do so in the knowledge that any injuries sustained can have a negative impact on their lives.

Whether the injury sustained effects them for just a short time or for the rest of their lives; a road traffic accident that causes whiplash can severely restrict a person’s movement and quality of life.

If you have been part of an accident that wasn’t your fault then you may require some sort of financial compensation in order to help you with your rehabilitation period or for loss of earnings due to absence from work as a direct result of the whiplash injury.

Whiplash injuries compensation can be caused by car accidents
When the neck is forced forward in a car accident whiplash can occur

Whiplash is caused in road traffic accidents when a person is jolted forward dramatically as a result of being sat in a vehicle that is hit from behind.

As you are more than likely to be strapped into your seat with a belt, you head and neck are jolted forwards quite forcefully, leading to potential strains on the neck muscles.

Whiplash Injuries Compensation: Virginia Woman Looks to her Feet to Cure Whiplash

In times of pain and personal suffering there are many ways to get through it.

The Loudoun Times has reported how Brenda Wayland decided to work through her pain to study what she loved most, reflexology.

Wayland had suffered severe whiplash as a result of a car accident and would need surgery on her neck in order to correct the muscles.

During those long months of rehabilitation she decided to throw herself into her passion. Reflexology is an alternative therapy that involves techniques of acupressure to reflexive areas on your hands and feet, each relating to a specific organ, gland and other parts of the body.

A qualified masseuse for over 20 years, Wayland now focuses entirely on feet as she claims ‘feet don’t lie’.

Her family has struggled over the last few years. Her daughter has also been involved in a road traffic accident whilst her son suffers from Crohn’s disease. She has used reflexology on her family to relieve pain and wanted to extend this service to the public.

Whiplash Injuries Compensation: An Alternative Treatment?

Reflexology is believed to help relieve neck pain, sciatica, back pain, headaches, foot pains and much more besides.

Brenda Wayland provides a soothing and relaxing space in which her clients receive 30-60 minute sessions. Using no oils or lotions, she gives what appears to be similar to a firm foot massage, constantly working the nerve endings with her thumb and fingers to stimulate them and to eliminate energy blockages that produce pain or disease.

Not everyone believes in alternative treatments such as reflexology. However, it is important to gain medical treatment and undergo rehabilitation if you have suffered from a whiplash type injury.

Sometimes those who have suffered an injury need to balance monetary requirements with extra treatment that might help with relaxation and provide a positive energy to aid your recovery.

If you have suffered an injury and require assistance with your rehabilitation you might want to think about making whiplash injuries compensation claims through a reputable firm such as Duncan Gibbins Solicitors.
