Compiles the proceedings of the March, 2014 IASP Research Symposium into one convenient volume, providing state-of-the-art information on the biopsychosocial factors involved in the development and course of chronic pain after whiplash.

Global experts in biomechanics, anatomy, psychology, and clinical practice focus on ways to advance research, understanding, prevention, and treatment, with a collaborative point of view that benefits both pain researchers and clinicians who treat patients with whiplash.

Topics range from neurobiological mechanisms of pain, clinical pain, and disability assessment to psychosocial aspects, as well as future treatment options for chronic whiplash patients. This unique volume provides an overview of current knowledge on:
- Epidemiology
- Clinical aspects of short- and long-term consequences of mild traumatic neck injury
- Ongoing biomechanical studies in animals, specimens, and humans who sustain neck injuries
- Prospective identification of the risk factors for widespread pain and chronicity after neck injury
- Factors to consider in developing innovative and integrative prevention and intervention programs
