Static and dynamic posturography was used to study patients who had experienced a prevalent laterally directed whiplash in a car accident. Results of both static and dynamic examinations were recorded. Findings showed that the whiplash injury had provoked shifting of the pressor center of the body toward a side that was at least indicative of the kind of cervical twist experienced, even when not corresponding to the prevalent direction of the trauma incurred.
