PMID:  11265356     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
How to diagnose and treat whiplash injuries, particularly in chronic cases, is one of the most controversial topics in medicine. Current diagnostic approaches cannot fully define the pathophysiologic mechanisms of these injuries, and traditional treatment regimens often fail to completely relieve symptoms. Dr Young reviews current management strategies and controversies and discusses potential methods of dealing with chronic cases.
