    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 6:    Low Speed Collisions and Minor Vehicle Damage

    • Point out the mathematics of how a low speed vehicle to vehicle collision can result in passenger injury.
    • Explain why vehicle damage should not be used as a proxy for passenger injury.
    • Integrate the concepts of awareness, rotation, and pre-accident spondylosis in injury magnitude and prognosis.

    Hour 7:    Soft Tissue Injury and Repair

    • Define the three phases of soft tissue healing and point out the time sequence for each phase.
    • Justify the clinical interventions that have a positive therapeutic influence on each phase of soft tissue injury healing.
    • 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.
