Whiplash is a relatively common injury that occurs to a person's neck due to a sudden acceleration-deceleration force that causes unrestrained, rapid forward and backward movement of the head and neck (most commonly from motor vehicle accidents). There are different types of WAD (Whiplash Associated Disorders). Your physiotherapist will help control the pain and inflammation during whiplash and implement appropriate care to gain good function. It is sometimes noted that when whiplash symptoms tend to be more than usual, it may be due to the involvement of nerves.

Dizziness is quite a disabling symptom. The inner ear or the vestibular system is one of the main balance organs in the body that coordinates with your eyes, brain and your joint receptors to maintain balance. Any disease or dysfunction of this system can result in symptoms like vertigo, tinnitus (ringing in your ears), plugged ear sensations, hearing loss and loss of balance. The science of treating disorders of the vestibular system is termed as Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT).
