Hour 1: Anatomy Review

Emphasize the unique anatomy of the cervical spine as related to spinal trauma.

Point put the importance of the uncinate process joints as related do disc herniation, the nerve root, the vertebral artery, and the spinal cord.

Explain how cervical spine injury may manifest clinically as low back and leg pain.

Hour 2: Define Sleep Hygiene

Explain the role for sleep and sleep’s influence on the ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.

Summarize the influence of sleep on brain neurochemistry.

Hour 3: Awareness and Soft Tissue Injury

Explain the influence of awareness on an impending collision and the muscles ability to protect joints.

Explain how being “caught by surprise” by a collision is related to a poor prognosis for full recovery.

Hour 4: Whiplash History

Summarize the history of whiplash injuries, including mechanical mechanisms, biological mechanisms, pathology, diagnostics and management.

Define the issues that the early whiplash literature got wrong.

Emphasize the issues that early whiplash literature got correct.

Hour 7:    Soft Tissue Injury and Repair

Define the three phases of soft tissue healing and point out the time sequence for each phase.

Emphasize the concept of motion in the healing of injured soft tissues, especially spinal adjusting (specific manipulation) motion.

Quantify acute injury and ultimate recovery(prognosis) by using measurement outcomes.

Hour 8:    Treatment Duration, Frequency, and Prognosis

Summarize the biology and published data on treatment frequency and duration for whiplash spinal trauma.

Point out published studies relating to recovery and prognosis.

Reference the incidence of acceleration of spondylosis in long-term studies following a whiplash injury.
