Many People in Plantation, FL Experience Health Issues caused by Untreated Whiplash

Whiplash Injury Plantation Sunrise
Critical Damage to the Spine and Nervous system can go undetected.

Your head has about the same weight as a bowling ball.  So when you experience a traumatic impact, such as a car accident or sports injury, your head is whipped back and forth, easily ripping the delicate ligaments and discs that support your cervical spine.  The symptoms following a car accident can vary. Many people in Plantation and Sunrise, FL don’t feel anything for weeks or months.  So they think they are ok if they don’t feel pain, this may not be a good judge of health, as many people feel just fine the day before a fatal heart attack or stroke.  Others never felt better the month before finding out they have cancer.  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. 

Immediately Following a Car Accident common symptoms are:

  • Anxiety, Insomnia, and tingling in the feet or hands
  • Pain in the neck, shoulders, elbow, hands, knees, feet, chest, upper or lower back
  • Many people also experience numbness but aren’t aware of it until tested with a pinprick.


  • 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 any the misalignment of any joint of the cervical spine. (4)
  • Depression – Studies show that relief from misalignments to the cervical spine, as in the type caused by auto injury, can lift depression (5)
  • Fatigue and Sleep Disorders – Removing misalignments like those caused by trauma 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, causing headaches, 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, and that getting chiropractic treatment can help.
