Stress and Emotional Trauma from Car Accident and Whiplash Injuries!
Many people in Plantation, Davie, and Sunrise and just about everywhere can feel traumatized following a car accident. The shock can last for weeks, and the effects can last a lifetime. Some people experience posttraumatic stress disorder and other stress-related syndromes. The stress can express itself in mood disorders, clumsiness, forgetfulness, insomnia, headaches, and muscle tension among other symptoms. Some of these symptoms can actually be caused by physical damage to the brain.
One important cause of damage to the brain is the misalignment of the atlas/occipital junction this is where the head connects to the neck. This area is very frequently affected by the whipping of the cervical spine on impact. This can prevent proper circulation of blood to the brain. Think about this, your brain will die if it is deprived of oxygen for 5 minutes. Misalignments of the spine can deprive the brain of all of the oxygen it needs and prevent the brain from functioning at 100 percent. Over time this can cause long-term damage to the brain and all the functions it controls.
Stress to the Brain Can Compromise your Long-Term Health!
Stress to the brain can affect the function of the Atlas/occipital junction that controls your autonomic nervous system. 90% of the brain expenditure is running the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system controls everything that your body does without your conscious control. Such as sleep, digestion, immunity, sex, cardiovascular function, etc.. Not sleeping is one of the first signs that your brain stem is under stress. The sequela can progress to other autonomic nervous system functions. Stress to the brain perpetuates more stress when unchecked, even affecting your sex life and causing other seemingly unrelated diseases like heart disease.
Reduced blood circulation to the brain is the second most common cause of Alzheimer’s disease.
