Returning to Work After Whiplash

Share

A study published in the journal BMC Public Health found that only 44% of individuals suffering from whiplash had returned to work after two years as compared to 57% of individuals with other musculoskeletal injuries.

Approximately 19-60% of individuals with whiplash-associated disorders still experience symptoms six months after the injury, and up to half of that percentage will fail to return to work within a year due to their symptoms. Researchers from Denmark conducted a study to determine whether the high rates of continuous and consistent symptoms actually affected the return-to-work rates of individuals with whiplash type injuries.�By the end of the study, 56% of individuals with whiplash injuries were still on sick leave after two years.�The results for this study proved to be much higher compared to the results found in earlier studies. For example, a study conducted in 2001 demonstrated that only 12% of individuals with whiplash-associated disorders hadn�t returned to their normal activities or they had resumed back only to modified job functions a year after their initial injuries.�

Regardless, both research studies showed that for individuals with chronic symptoms of whiplash, the chance of long-term work disability was greater.�Active rehabilitation, such as chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, and exercise can promote an individual�s recovery as well as ensure they can return quickly to their regular lifestyles and work responsibilities.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

For individuals who�ve been injured during an automobile accident, recovering from their injuries quickly and returning to their regular lifestyles is a top priority but, unfortunately for some people, that may not always be the case. Studies suggest that individuals diagnosed with whiplash-associated disorders may have slower return-to-work rates than people who�ve experienced other musculoskeletal injuries.
