Whiplash Injury Recovery - a Self Help Guide
The Whiplash Injury Recovery - a Self Help Guide is designed to aid the recovery of people with a whiplash injury and to supplement care being provided by a health professional. The second edition of this booklet has been published in June 2011 following a review of the latest whiplash research. This along with feedback from focus groups has ensured that the booklet information is current and meets the needs of consumers. The booklet has been extended to include additional information and exercises.
Professor Gwendolen Jull, Director of the Cervical Spine and Whiplash Research Unit in the Division of Physiotherapy at the University of Queensland and Associate Professor Michele Sterling, Director of the Rehabilitation Research Program at the Centre of National Research on Disability (CONROD), are the authors of the second edition.
The self-management advice and exercise program in the booklet are based on the results of clinical trials, research into neck disorders and the authors' extensive clinical experience in the area of whiplash-associated disorders and other neck pain syndromes.
