An X-ray is taken if there is suspicion of a fracture or dislocation of the cervical spine. Treatment Of Whiplash

If there is no dislocation or fracture the patient should do exercises and pursue the normal activities as soon as possible. For most of the people injury will simply pass after a short period. Medicines like Paracetamol and NSAIDs (non steroidal inflammatory drugs) can be given for short period of time when there is headache and neck pain. Ice and heat are good treatments for common muscular injuries. Ice is recommended for first 48hours, followed by wet heat. The ice will reduce swelling and heat will increase circulation to the injury and speed up healing process.
