The Whiplash Myth & Quebec Task Force
Since its release, the Quebec Task Force (QTF) classification has been criticized for its usefulness in predicting prognosis.
Kivioja et al did a longitudinal study of 100 patients with Whiplash Associated Disorders (WAD) and reported that the QTF classification was of very limited value.
The greatest challenge with the WAD II diagnosis is that it includes a very broad range of symptoms; therefore a very broad range of recovery rate can also be expected.
In other words not all WAD II patients recover within 6-weeks!
