The present study's objective is to understand the causal mechanisms underpinning the recovery of individuals with whiplash-associated disorders (WAD). We applied Bayesian Networks (BN) to answer two study aims: (1) to identify the causal mechanism(s) of recovery underpinning neck-specific exercise, and (2) quantify if the cyclical pathway of the fear avoidance model (FAM) is supported by the present data.
