Sex-related Differences in Symptoms of Temporomandibular Disorders and Structural Changes in the Lateral Pterygoid Muscle after Whiplash Injury.
Sex-specific differences in pain intensity, distribution of clinical and abnormal MRI findings, and their relationships are shown and these differences should be considered when treating patients with TMD.
Classification of neck movement patterns related to whiplash-associated disorders using neural networks
It is shown that neck movement analysis combined with a neural network could build the basis of a decision support system for classifying suspected WAD, even though further evaluation of the method is needed.

MRI-Based Assessment of Masticatory Muscle Changes in TMD Patients after Whiplash Injury
Objective: to investigate the change in volume and signal in the masticatory muscles and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) of patients with temporomandibular disorder (TMD) after whiplash injury, based
Head position and impact direction in whiplash injuries: associations with MRI-verified lesions of ligaments and membranes in the upper cervical spine.
The difference in MRI-verified lesions between WAD patients and control persons, and in particular the association with head position and impact direction at time of accident, indicate that these lesions are caused by the whiplash trauma.
Exercise therapy for whiplash-associated disorders: a systematic review and meta-analysis
The results from the present review with meta-analysis suggests that exercise therapy may provide additional effect for improvement of neck pain and disability in patients with Whiplash-Associated Disorders.
Dynamic kine magnetic resonance imaging in whiplash patients and in age- and sex-matched controls.
Whiplash patients with longstanding symptoms had both more abnormal signals from the alar ligaments and more abnormal movements on dMRI at the C0-C2 level than controls.
Coping in patients with chronic whiplash-associated disorders: a descriptive study.
A mixture of symptoms (pain and depression) and coping (catastrophizing) seem to be interwoven and explain patients' health-related quality of life.
Delayed temporomandibular joint pain and dysfunction induced by whiplash trauma: a controlled prospective study.
One in three people who are exposed to whiplash trauma is at risk of developing delayed TMJ symptoms that may require clinical management, suggesting awareness of a significant risk for delayed onset of TMJ symptom onset is crucial for making adequate diagnoses, prognoses and medicolegal decisions.
Symptom profile of persons self-reporting whiplash: a Norwegian population-based study (HUNT 2)
People with chronic WAD had a symptom profile more similar to people with a functional somatic disorder than an organic pain disorder, consisting of a wide array of symptoms, not only predominantly pain symptoms.
