    • <p>The two northernmost counties in Sweden form together 1 of the 39 collaborating centers in the World Health Organization (WHO) MONICA (MONItoring of trends and determinants in CArdiovascular disease) project. At the last survey in 1999, we added some questions about cervical spine complaints. Persons randomly selected from the population in a geographically well-defined area completed a self-administered questionnaire. The sample included 8,356 subjects and 6,000 (72%) of them answered. 43% of the population reported neck pain, more women (48%) than men (38%). Women of working age had more neck pain than older ones, a phenomenon not seen among men. Chronic neck pain, defined as continuous pain of more than 6 months' duration, was commoner in women (22%) than men (16%).More than one fourth of the cases with chronic symptoms had a history of neck or head trauma and one third of these had sustained a whiplash type of injury. Thus, all types of neck trauma seem to be associated with chronic neck pain.</p>

  • The incidence of whiplash trauma and the effects of different factors on recovery
  • 2003
  • Ingår i: Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques. - Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. - 1536-0652 .- 1539-2465. ; 16:2, s. 195-199
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>We performed a prospective study of patients with a whiplash trauma to the cervical spine to describe the incidence of these injuries and to evaluate prognostic factors for disability and recovery. A total of 356 patients were enrolled in the study. All the patients received a comprehensive questionnaire after the injury, and 296 cases responded to the follow-up protocol more than 1 year after the accident. Disability related to the whiplash trauma was used as the outcome variable for the assessment of prognostic factors. The annual incidence of acute whiplash trauma in the catchment area was 4.2 per 1,000 inhabitants and 3.2 per 1,000 for whiplash-associated disorder grades 1-3. Thirty-two percent reported persisting disability at follow-up. The following factors were significantly associated with a poor prognosis: pretraumatic neck pain, low educational level, female gender, and whiplash-associated disorder grades 2-3.</p>
