Whiplash Sufferers and Chronic Pain…

Current research estimates that about 20% of whiplash patients will go on to experience chronic pain. In this study, researchers compared the number of painful locations and pain intensity between patients with chronic whiplash and patients with other types of chronic pain. The investigators found that whiplash sufferers had a higher number of painful locations and felt pain more intensely than the other participants. The results underscore the need for patients who sustain a whiplash injury to get appropriate treatment to reduce their risk for developing chronic pain.
