Whiplash injury can lead to a variety of clinical manifestations called Whiplash Associated Disorders (WAD). It is estimated that about 30% to 50% of patients who sustain a symptomatic whiplash injury will ultimately report chronic, and potentially more widespread symptoms. As a physiotherapist it is important to know the presentation, examination, and management of a person with WAD as well as have an understanding of red flags and general neck pain rehabilitation.


The aim of the course is to provide you with an in-depth overview of Whiplash Associated Disorders and remind you of red flags to consider as well as the principles of neck pain rehabilitation.
