 had an accident got a whiplash yesterday didnt feel any pain at that time or u can say whole day.. now I am. having strain in my neck n full right aram

When I was in grade 2 I faked an abdomen ache for so long that eventually my mother took me to the doctor and I had an appendectomy but in reality all Iwanted was to miss school. So it is always worth finding out if the child is not enjoying school and if there are problems at school and that's why the child is complaining of stomach aches. 

In regards to ACL injuries, do you recommend the LARS method? Michael

Was an ultra marathoner. Went on training run and was so in the zone when a car hooted nearby. Severe case of whiplash. Tony

After hearing a snap and excruciating during a football match I got up and started playing after a few minutes since the pain had subsided. And then there was a very bad snap which resulted in a total ACL break requiring 2 surgeries :-). Abid Minhas
