Sparse evidence for treating whiplash associated disorders
This article summarises the current evidence for the treatment of whiplash associated disorders. The effect of immobilisation, physiotherapy, information and cognitive behavioural therapy was examined. Immobilisation was associated with a poorer outcome and could not be recommended. Physiotherapy was not more effective than information. Cognitive behavioural therapy seemed effective for the chronic patients. In conclusion, immobilisation cannot be recommended, but physiotherapy seems to be similar in effectiveness to information.
