Whiplash injury recovery

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.

This booklet contains a program of exercises to help reduce neck pain and aid recovery from a whiplash injury. You can watch a video on how best to perform these exercises by accessing the QR code displayed next to the exercise. Most smart phones are able to automatically read a QR code through their camera.

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.
