Working with trauma and post-traumatic stress syndrome, the Hellers apply Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing to the neck, spine, head, and other areas that are afflicted in the aftermath of an automobile accident. The Hellers identify symptoms of nervousness, sleep disorder, loss of appetite, and sexual dysfunction; they focus on explanation through case histories, and treatment through simple exercises and bodywork. Twelve million Americans are involved in auto accidents every year.

This book takes the bold step to confront and actively treat and heal symptoms and traumas that all too often go underestimated and untreated. The Hellers encourage victims of auto accidents, whether years have passed or only several days or months, to take control of their situation with new confidence, balance, and emotional stability. -- from the publisher

"The Hellers' ground-breaking new book Crash Course, provides both a rational background to the concept of symptoms based on actual changes in brain function resulting from a traumatic experience, as well as a potent means of beginning the healing process. It is a must read for victims of motor vehicle accidents, and for the practitioners who treat them." -- Robert C. Scaer, M.D. P.C., Neurology and Neurorehabilitation, author of Body Bears The Burden: Trauma, Dissociation, and Disease
"This book empowers the individual to recover from auto accident-related pain and suffering. I have personally benefited from these techniques after a severe head-on collision, and I have seen my auto accident patients heal more quickly and completely when using them. Kudos to the Hellers for bring this important subject out of obscurity and mystery." -- Dr. Jeffry T. Parker
