Don’t Let Critical Damage to the Spine and Nervous system can go undetected.

The average head weighs about 11 lbs.  So, when you experience a traumatic impact, such as a car accident or sports injury, it gets is whipped back and forth. This motion often damages the delicate ligaments and discs that support the head, spraining or straining ligaments.  Your Downtown Miami/Sunrise Chiropractor can help.

Many people don’t feel anything for weeks or months following a traumatic injury. Often they think they are okey if they don’t feel pain. This may not be a good judge of health, this is why we do regular blood testing and other health checks.  The point is, following an auto injury or trauma, it is important to see a Chiropractic Physician that will give you a complete orthopedic and neurological evaluation to check for damage to your spine.   Many people have even broken bones without realizing it.

COMMON LONG TERM DAMAGE CAUSED BY WHIPLASH

  • Heart Pain – This can set in following an auto injury caused by ensuing degenerative disease, affecting bone and cartilage resulting in coronary infarction.  Since I have been practicing (over 20 years), every patient with idiopathic heart pain has responded well to chiropractic care. (1)
  • Vision Blindness– ophthalmological examination has found adjustments to have immediate improvements in vision, for people with subluxations form car accidents and other reasons. (2)
  • Facial Pain – Facial pain has been linked to misalignments of the cranium’s junction with the upper cervical spine which can happen in trauma. (3)
  • Eye Jerking Nystagmus has been found to be caused by the misalignment of any joint of the cervical spine. (4)
  • Depression – Studies show that adjustments to the cervical spine often can lift depression. (5)
  • Fatigue and Sleep Disorders – Removing misalignments like those caused by car accidents have been found to relieve symptoms of sleep disorders and fatigue. (6)
  • Headaches – Headaches have been found to occur as a delayed symptom after whiplash trauma in the cervical spine.  These symptoms may persist for years, and lead to depression. (7)
  • Dizziness and Equilibrium Disorders – These symptoms developed from trauma have been found to be relieved by chiropractic care.  (8)
  • Fainting – Studies show that fainting syndromes were linked to traumatic injuries such as those sustained from car accidents.
  • Heart Rhythm disorders – Studies show that whiplash and trauma can cause heart rhythm disorders, as well as other cardiovascular complications.  Getting prompt chiropractic evaluation and treatment can save care can help prevent a lifetime of durgs and surgeries.
  • Chronic fatigue – Chronic fatigue has been associated with subluxation, and postural distortions that are frequently caused by car accidents. Chiropractic adjustments have been found to be effective in treatment.
