Abstract

Background
Whiplash injuries occur due to an ‘acceleration–deceleration energy transfer to the neck’, usually as the result of a motor vehicle accident, although the injury may also occur while participating in sport for example, diving. Clinically, whiplash injuries are graded 0–IV (higher grade indicates increased severity) with the majority of patients (93.4%) classified as having a grade II injury (neck complaint eg, pain, stiffness or tenderness AND musculoskeletal signs eg, reduced range of motion).1 While grade II whiplash injuries are frequently managed with conservative treatment approaches, the effectiveness of specific physiotherapy interventions has not been investigated in isolation.
