The Whiplash Book

how you can deal with a whiplash injury - based on the latest medical research

Gordon Waddell, Anthony Burton, Tim McClune

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This booklet provides advice and information on how to cope with whiplash injury, in order to avoid long term pain and disability. It is based on the latest medical research and has been written by a multidisciplinary team whose specialisms cover orthopaedics, biomechanics and osteopathy. As the basic message is to keep moving, the booklet includes a number of neck exercises.

'Whiplash is controversial and surrounded by conflicting ideas. There is a demand from patients for accurate and effective information and advice', according to authors Gordon Waddell, MD, Kim Burton, DO.Phd. and Tim McClune, DO. 'The Whiplash Book has been produced as a direct response to that need.'

The authors hope to see the booklet used in accident and emergency departments where many patients begin their medical odyssey after an accident. They would also like to see the booklet employed in the practices of general practitioners, chiropractors, physical therapists, and others engaged in the primary care of whiplash. 'The idea is to get it to patients at the earliest possible stage', says Burton, 'after proper triage, of course'.

What is most attractive about The Whiplash Book is the simple use of language. It is refreshingly free of medical jargon.
