A new textbook from Elsevier Australia entitled 'Whiplash: evidence base for clinical practice', makes essential reading for those involved in managing whiplash patients.
In clear, easy-to-follow text, the book presents the evidence underpinning the complexity of whiplash associated disorders (WADs), providing valuable insight into a clinical problem that is extremely common, though sometimes contentious and relatively poorly understood.
An invaluable resource for clinicians and policy makers alike, 'Whiplash: evidence base for clinical practice' covers the full spectrum of the condition’s current evidence base, and features comprehensive case studies on both acute and chronic whiplash injuries.
Critical topics such as litigation and the role of compensation in whiplash injuries are dealt with in discrete chapters, along with specifics of whiplash’s physiological and psychological manifestations.
This new book makes an essential addition to the bookshelves of physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy, occupational therapy and health psychology practitioners and postgraduate students, and is also beneficial for practitioners in rehabilitation therapies and primary care.
