Global experts in biomechanics, anatomy, psychology, and clinical practice focus on ways to advance research, understanding, prevention, and treatment.

Edited by Helge Kasch, MD, PhD; Dennis C. Turk, PhD; and Troels S. Jensen, MD, DMSc.; the 266-page book addresses such topics as neurobiological mechanisms of pain, clinical pain, and disability assessment to psychosocial aspects, as well as future treatment options for chronic whiplash patients.
