An exceptional medical resource for all professions involved in the management of whiplash patients Whiplash is one of the most debated and controversial musculoskeletal conditions. This is, in part, due to the often compensable nature of whiplash injuries and the fact that a precise pathoanatomical diagnosis is not usually achievable. Whiplash: Evidence base for clinical practice presents the evidence underpinning the complexity of whiplash associated disorders (WADs). This ranges from the specifics of current physiological and psychological manifestations of whiplash to broader issues such as compensation and litigation. This new medical textbook turns the spotlight on whiplash injuries and makes essential reading for anyone involved in the management whiplash patients. This includes physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy, occupational therapy and health psychology practitioners and postgraduate students, as well as practitioners in rehabilitation therapies and primary care.

• discrete chapters on litigation and the role of compensation in whiplash injuries
• case studies on acute and chronic whiplash conditions
• covers the spectrum of the current evidence base for whiplash
• includes perspectives from a wide range of disciplines
• an invaluable resource for clinicians and policy makers alike
