 +Hubby in his usual annoying ​[[:kpaddock:​my_reading_list#​Relationships|Mr. Fix It]] mode came across ​//Soft-Tissue Review, 1996-2003//, ​ //Injury Resources Review, 2003-2006// and //The Guide to Whiplash// which we subscribed to for years.  ​Today the organization is known as [[http://www.injuryresources.com|Injury Resources]] today.  ​If you have Whiplash, and there is no real test to prove itjust like there is no current objective test to show that you are hungry (a type of pain), I highly recommend getting their books and publications.
