Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to examine the concept of the physiological management of pain following acute Grade 2 whiplash injury while facilitating recovery and maintenance of a full range of cervical spine movement. In a series of studies a statistically significant effect was demonstrated on the improved and sustained range of cervical movement p<0.0005 and on the effective control of pain p<0.0005 generated by movement to relieve post injury stiffness. In an Audit study there was a beneficial effect on the improvement in patient confidence in selfmanagement of their condition 84% following attendance at an educational neck school. The effective use of soft collars on the available range of cervical movement p<0.025 and on the balance of the body showed a statistically significant result p
