WHIPLASH is a controversial, but widely accepted, “diagnostic” term that describes a putative causal mechanism for a constellation of symptoms that are generally not underpinned by recognisable pathology. This reference book has the stated aim: “to bring together current knowledge of the whiplash condition that will allow all stakeholders involved in the management of patients with whiplash, from clinicians to policy makers, to gain greater understanding of this condition”.
