Cervical whiplash injuries continue to be a common problem throughout the industrialized world. Despite recent scientific developments, unhelpful treatment of whiplash injuries such as, prolonged immobilization, passive modalities, and unnecessary surgery exist. Many patients with chronic pain are labelled as having psychological problems. Overtreatment and excessive use of diagnostic imaging are common. Relatively recent developments in this field, backed by extensive study, have initiated an evolution in the treatment of whiplash injury.
