Whiplash and Chiropractic Care

The Chiro.Org Blog

Our Whiplash page has been online since early 1996. During those years we have continued to compile valuable materials, including the Whiplash Care Recommendations, generously provided by Arthur C. Croft, DC from his best-selling text book titled Whiplash Injuries: The Cervical Acceleration/ Deceleration Syndrome.

We also provide access to several chapters on soft-tissue injury and cervical spine trauma from the profession’s most-published author, Richard C. Schafer, D.C., FICC. All these materials are found in the Primary Resources section.

The next section, titled Whiplash Articles contains hundreds of peer-reviewed abstracts relating to all aspects of whiplash research.

The Low Speed Rear End Impact Collisions (LOSRIC) contains articles that clarify why low-speed accidents generate the symptoms we encounter in our office.

And last, the Chronic Neck Pain page contains many studies demonstrating the effectiveness of chiropractic care for chronic neck pain.

I hope you will find the Whiplash Page to be a helpful resource.

  • I just took Steve Eggleston’s whiplash seminar and I recommend it very highly. His message is that ligamentous damage and Mild Traumatic Brian Injury (or concussion) are symptoms experienced by 40-60% of the PI patients we see, and most of the time these conditions go undiagnosed and untreated — by chiropractors or MDs. A great seminar.

  • I am very grateful for the generosity of those that have contributed their work to advance chiropractic, and this board for bringing it together to make it available.

    I have also taken Eggleston’s seminar and it was a great experience. Anyone practicing in this area should also take it. It was a great resource of information for a very common complication.

    Thank you for posting these links as they are also great resources for information on whiplash.
