Up to 10% patients with whiplash injury become totally disabled. Whiplash injuries account for greater than 65% of all injury claims. In Canada, whiplash injuries account for approximately 2 million insurance claims every year. In Britain, the economic cost exceeds $600 million annually (ICBC). About 300,000 of these become disabled. Cervicalgia refers to neck pain that occur towards the rear end of the cervical vertebrae. It affects the nerves arising from the cervical vertebrae.
