Hello Professionally Integrated,
Here is a paper where the authors looked at what areas cause pain in the lumbar spine AFTER a car crash. You can clearly see the pain is not diagnosed as "whiplash". By understanding where the pain generator is, we can get a specific diagnosis that can lead to a better treatment plan. The authors also discuss what happens during bracing like when a patient has their foot on the break. Patients had pain over 3 months after a crash. This is ANOTHER paper showing "patients do not just get better" after a crash like many IMEs . . .
