Car Accident Chiropractor in Daytona Beach FL

auto injuries are commonly helped by seeing a chiropractor

Since 1989, over 1,000 residents of Florida have sought care with Dr. Cullers at Premier Pain Relief for medical massage & chiropractic care in Daytona Beach after having an auto injury. A common auto injury, whiplash, occurs when the head and neck are whipped from back to front, like how a whip is cracked. The majority of car accidents are rear-end collisions with whiplash being a common result. Whiplash can also occur from other kinds of trauma, accidents, abuse, and falls.

Many people in Daytona Beach who have been involved in an accident don't even realize they have received a whiplash injury until weeks or months later when the problem becomes persistent and leads to other issues. If your neck has been injured in an accident or other incident, this article will you understand if you have a whiplash injury and how medical massage & chiropractic care in Daytona Beach FL can help you to treat it.

Whiplash in Daytona Beach FL

When the neck is whipped from back to front during a car accident, while playing contact sports such as football, or occasionally from an assault or other physical trauma, a number of things can happen to the spine and surrounding soft tissue. Whiplash describes the initial impact, but the results can include:

  • Disc bulges and herniation
  • Subluxations (misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine),
  • Injured bones in the spine,
  • Irritated and damaged nerves
  • Pulled ligaments and muscles in the neck


Whiplash injuries can range from mild to very severe. Injuries tend to be more significant when your headrest is positioned too low. If the impact was quite severe or the headrest was low, there is the possibility that bones are broken, or tissue is damaged. After a car accident, it is highly recommended that you schedule a New Patient Examination with Dr. Cullers and receive a thorough examination. If x-rays are needed Dr. Cullers will refer to a local imaging facility. Even if the impact seemed mild, you may have whiplash if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder, upper back, and arm pain
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Pain when turning the head
  • Inability to move or turn the head fully
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms, hands, and fingers
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Depression

As you can see there are a wide range of symptoms and not all of them may be immediately traceable to whiplash. Even if you have been cleared by a doctor, your pain could still be related to whiplash, and you may need treatment to correct the problem. If you have recently been injured it's important to get your soft tissues and your spine checked as soon as possible. The sooner that you start treating the issue the less chance you have of it developing into a long-term problem.


Because the majority of whiplash incidents impact the spine and the surrounding nerves and tissues, medical massage & chiropractic care is an excellent avenue for treatment. Dr. Cullers is skilled in assessing the source of the pain associated with a whiplash injury and determining a plan for effective treatment. The Medical Massage & Chiropractic treatments he uses are gentle and non-invasive. With consistent treatment, people have experienced great relief from the pain associated with whiplash and are set on a road to full recovery.
