Chronic neck pain following car crashes: a population‐based study from Auckland, New Zealand
Abstract:Background: In a setting with a ‘no fault’ universal government‐funded accident compensation system, we undertook a study to (i) estimate the prevalence and predictors of chronic neck pain in car occupants surviving serious injury‐producing crashes and (ii) compare the longer‐term health‐related quality of life of crash survivors with and without neck discomfort.
