See your doctor

After your injury it is important to see your doctor. Your doctor will do a medical check and advise you about treatment. In most cases x-rays and other tests are not needed for whiplash.

You may be asked to complete some questions about pain and any difficulties you are having. Your doctor will use this information to recommend treatment or medication for pain.

Talk to your doctor about how you can keep working and doing your usual activities during your recovery. Your doctor might suggest that you see a health professional, who will treat your symptoms and give you neck exercises to help with your recovery.
