Until recently most attention was focussed on low back pain but now the key area of interest for new research is neck pain and related headache often associated with whiplash or poor posture in working environments such as using computers. This book presents the latest research findings and gives recommendations and guidelines on how to relate those findings to the prevention and management of neck pain. It also points the way fo areas where more research is needed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An extremely thorough book detailing and clarifying terminology and definitions before moving into pain, risk factors and specifics of injury. The scope of the book is specific to the neck and divided into acute and chronic pain and then whiplash and cervicogenic headache. This is one of the most well referenced and up to date books i have read on the spine. The diagrams, illustrations and tables add to the clarity of information and ease of understanding. Clear explanations and division of aspects of acute and chronic neck pain mean information can be taken on a specific topic or read through in a logic and progressive order – taking a history, physical examination, imaging, tests and evidence for treatment. One of the best aspects of this book is its utilitarian approach to the evidence ensuring it is strictly evidence based and does not allow for opinion or consensus, only evidence. Overall a very good book and a excellent addition to any physiotherapists bookshelf."
Nicholas Downing, physiotherapy student, University of Birmingham
