Active involvement and intervention in patients exposed to whiplash trauma in automobile crashes reduces costs: a randomized, controlled clinical trial and health economic evaluation: Erratum

The article that appeared on page 1799 in the July 15, 2006 issue of Spine had errors within the data of 3 tables. In and , SEK is now converted to GBR, EUR, and USD, using the current exchange rate at the time of this writing. The phenomenon remains of group 2 having higher costs (both in total and mean) than Group 1 while having lower average days on sick leave. The authors wish to note group 1 has one patient with a very long sick leave (180 days during last 6 months), making sick leave skewed. Therefore, comparing mean days on sick leave between groups does not present a correct representation of group differences. In , P values are changed slightly but conclusions are unchanged. All correct tables are shown below.
