Persistent complaints after a whiplash

Have you had a whiplash and do you experience persistent symptoms, even weeks after the recovery of the whiplash? For instance, fatigue, headaches and concentration problems. In other words: you are not feeling well since the whiplash and weeks after recovery you are still not the same as you used to be.

It is possible that you are experiencing cognitive complaints as a result of brain damage. At Move the Brain you can recover from this so that you will be your old self again.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is the result of the head being thrown backwards and then forwards with great force (flexion-extension movement), for example as a result of a rear-end collision. This movement causes a strain of the neck muscle.

If you experience cognitive symptoms after the accident, which are similar to the symptoms after a concussion (the Post-Commotional Syndrome). If so, the symptoms can be effectively and permanently reduced with training at Move the Brain. Discover our recovery training programs below.

Recovering from whiplash

Whiplash is diagnosed based on the circumstances of the accident and the symptoms experienced. The problem is that on brain scans (MRI/CT) there is no detectable brain damage. But because of the force with which the head moves, parts of the brain become compressed. This can cause micro-leasings in the connections, just like in a concussion (PCS). This causes your symptoms.

Therefore, the solution lies in training your brain to weaken the overloaded connections in your brain and stimulate new connections. This will reduce the physical symptoms you are experiencing. Move the Brain offers this training.

How do you recognize whiplash?

In the first place, you have to be able to deal with the symptoms of whiplash. When you are in a situation where you can’t see the difference between the two, you can’t do it yourself. You can also choose to have your own way of working, or to have your own way of working. It is also possible that they feel misunderstood by doctors and people in their environment.

However, whiplash clients do have brain damage and this can be treated. We treat whiplash just like Post-Communal Syndrome, with extra focus on loosening the neck and shoulder muscles and improving posture.

The consequences and symptoms after brain injury are different for everyone. For example, some people only have physical symptoms such as pain and stiffness in the neck or pain in the arm and shoulder. Move the Brain cannot offer a solution in these cases.

Do your complaints go beyond just physical symptoms? Then Move the Brain can help you with your problems and reduce or solve them through our training program.
