Whiplash Injury Documentation

In this short video, Dr. Martin Schmaltz explains some of the critical procedures and forms used to document the severity of a personal injury case. Such information as

  • Algometeric pain threshold testing
  • Oswestry Disability forms
  • Rivermead Postconcussive Questionnaire
  • CDC’s Acute Concussion Evaluation form.

Proper use of these tests and assessment tools provide the documentation:

  • If a concussion has been suffered
  • Lowered pain threshold of injured tissue
  • Disabilities regarding self-care and Activities of Daily Living (ADL)

This information is crucial to determining the extent of a patients injury, removing it from the typical “strain/sprain” or “soft tissue” classification.
