Whiplash is the most common auto accident injury treated by our chiropractor, Dr. Pine. Whiplash is caused by the rapid extension and flexion of the neck during a car accident. The movement can be very damaging to the bones, faceted joints, muscles and ligaments of the neck and back. Severe whiplash may require orthopedic treatment and whiplash has even been known to cause brain injury.
Recovery after an Auto Accident Injury
Here at our Pompano Beach clinic, we use chiropractic manipulations combined with physical therapy, and massage to rehabilitate the back and neck after a whiplash injury. Additionally, Dr. Pine is experienced in orthopedic care and will use his knowledge to further enhance your recovery and pain relief. Dr. Pine will provide you with a physical therapy program that includes massage therapy; electro-stimulation, trigger point therapy and specific stretching and range of motion exercises to ensure that your soft tissues heal correctly and that you enjoy a full recover from your auto accident injury.
In most auto accident cases there are no out of pocket expenses (including co-payments and deductibles) for the patient. Dr. Pine has been working with auto injuries for over 35 years. He will work closely with your Medical Doctor and Attorney to make sure that you have a supportive team behind you on your road to recovery.
At Pine Chiropractic Center, we are proud to be your Pompano Beach auto injury and chiropractic office. At our chiropractic clinic in Pompano Beach, we commonly see patients seeking massage therapy from Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Oakland Park, Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale, Lighthouse Point, Hillboro Beach, Deerfield Beach and the surrounding Broward County areas. Our goal is to always be on the lookout for new and innovative ways to help our chiropractic patients feel better using holistic means without having to resort to surgery and/or unnecessary pain medications for pain managment. That is why we have included a licensed massage therapist as part of our wellness staff. Massage therapy in Pompano Beach is an all-natural way to help soothe your tired muscles and relax your mind, but massage therapy actually has several other mental and physical benefits besides just feeling good
Regular massage therapy is known to cause a reduction in perceived lower back pain as well as many other types of pain such as upper back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain. The pain management qualities of massage therapy (especially when combined with chiropractic care) often allow patients to decrease or even eliminate their reliance on pain medications. Massage therapy is especially effective when used to reduce the pain symptoms of whiplash, soft tissue injuries and other car accident pain symptoms.
Massage is also extremely effective at reducing the severity and occurrence of certain types of migraines and chronic headaches. If a patient is suffering from muscle spasms or cramps, massage can help restore normal balance to those muscles.
In addition to massages therapeutic effects in reducing pain and speeding healing for injuries, massage also may help enhance immunity and has been demonstrated to decrease a patients feelings of depression and anxiety. Regular massage sessions may help reduce blood pressure, improve circulation and even improve the condition of the skin including scars or stretch marks.
While there are many long term benefits of regular massage therapy, you may be surprised to find out that most patients experience benefits after receiving only a single massage session. For example, even a single session of massage can release all-natural pain killers called endorphins which help reduce pain and may also improve your mood. Studies have suggested that immune function indicators may be improved after receiving a single massage session, which means that your immune system appears to get a boost from massage.
What options do you have in Pompano Beach for massage therapy? You may not realize that the auto injury chiropractors at Pine Chiropractic Center also offer massage to their patients as a great way to compliment their chiropractic care. At our chiropractic clinic in Pompano Beach, we commonly see massage patients from Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Oakland Park, Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale, Lighthouse Point, Hillboro Beach, Deerfield Beach and the surrounding Broward County areas.

How to Drive Safely During Your Daily Commute: Dont Get in an Auto Accident!
At Pine Chiropractic Center in Pompano Beach, we see many patients who have had an auto accident injury in Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Oakland Park, Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale, Lighthouse Point, Hillboro Beach, Deerfield Beach, and the surrounding Broward County area. Auto accidents can cause a variety of pain symptoms including neck pain, headaches, and lower back pain. While we can help auto accident injury patients start their road to a full recovery using chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy, the best treatment for an auto accident injury is prevention.
Most auto accidents in the U.S. occur within 20 miles of the drivers home. Only 1% of car accidents take place more than 50 miles from home. Due to how often you take your daily route, it can be one of the most likely places for you to become involved in an auto accident. Luckily, there are many things you can do to prevent yourself from getting an auto accident injury in Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Oakland Park, Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale, Lighthouse Point, Hillboro Beach, Deerfield Beach or anywhere else!
Five Easy Tips to Prevent an Auto Accident
Follow these easy tips to substantially reduce your chance of becoming involved in an auto accident during your daily commute.
- Wear Your Safety belt: Safety belts or seat belts can prevent an auto accident from being fatal about half of the time. If thats not enough reason for you, consider that drivers wearing a safety belt in an accident are much more likely to be able to walk away from an accident without serious injuries.
- Inspect the tread of your tires: Ensure that the grooves (tread) in your tires are at least 2/32" deep which is the legal limit in Pennsylvania. If you are going to be traveling in the rain or snow, you should have treads with grooves that are 4/32 or 6/32 deep. Treads with deep enough grooves will help your tires perform better in bad driving conditions and help you stay in control of the automobile.
- Check your tire pressure: In addition to the tire tread, it is important to regularly check the air pressure for each tire. Correctly inflated tires will reduce your chances of getting a flat tire and will also improve the handling on your car or truck. Properly inflated tires with a good amount of tread could help you avoid an auto accident!
- Plan for traffic: Allow plenty of extra traveling time to account for the heavy traffic which occurs during rush hour. Avoid getting in the habit of leaving your house five minutes late every day and rushing through traffic to try to make up the time.
- Follow posted speed limits: Time is precious, but being in a hurry and speeding are major causes of many auto accidents. Plan ahead to allow enough time for your commute and give yourself a few minutes extra minutes to allow for traffic or an unexpected stop.
Keep in mind that many drivers on the road are worried, hurried or distracted while they are driving to work or school. Because other drivers may be less careful, you must make sure you stay vigilant to avoid an auto accident in Pompano Beach.
If you follow these driving safety tips, you are one step closer to making sure that always arrive safely to your destination!

Seeking Chiropractic Care to Ease Pain
Experiencing a car accident can wreak havoc both emotionally and physically to the body. The blur of events and surge of adrenaline can stunt the prevalence of injuries until hours or even days after the accident has occurred. It can be a draining ordeal to say the least. After the physical and emotional trauma that may occur following a car accident, having a facility that will offer full recovery services and attentive care from a chiropractor can ease the pain and residual effects that may stem from an accident; while also initiating intensive rehabilitation to begin repair to injuries. For those in the Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Oakland Park, Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale, Lighthouse Point, Hillboro Beach, and Deerfield Beach areas who are suffering neck pain, headaches, low back pain and other injuries as a result of a car accident, chiropractic services are available for immediate attention.
A chiropractic evaluation is important in order to fully assess the level of damage that has been caused to the body, some of which may not be noticeable externally. Certain injuries such as swelling, chronic headaches and continual low back pain can be eliminated and monitored with massage therapy techniques and physical therapy exercises. More importantly, more serious injuries can be treated directly to prevent further damage from occurring within the body and to maintain pain management for everyday active lifestyles.
Seeking treatment from a chiropractor in Pompano Beach and the surrounding areas (Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Oakland Park, Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale, Lighthouse Point, Hillboro Beach, and Deerfield Beach) is essential following a car accident to evaluate the kind of treatment available and understand the goals of care for every step of the wellness plan. In addition, an immediate visit to the chiropractor will help to prevent further injuries and help to restore stability and comfort for the body through a chiropractic combination of massage therapy and physical therapy.
Why Immediate Chiropractic Care is Most Beneficial
The severity of a car accident cannot always determine the level of treatment needed for various injuries. Even the slightest fender bender can cause spinal misalignment, bruising, swelling and often times painful effects including neck pain, headaches and low back pain that may require a chiropractors trained methods and implemented exercises to alleviate soreness, rehabilitate injuries and ease low back pain and other muscle tenderness.
A complete evaluation will address all injuries, both internally and externally and a chiropractor can determine where the concentration of chiropractic care should be focused on, as well as what areas of the body are also being affected by the injury. This allows each treatment to provide the maximum benefits for the body's full, healthy recovery. Although at times recovery can seem slower than one might hope for, with the right treatment and consistent tracking of progress, the pace at which healing can actually occur happens more quickly than previously anticipated.
By seeking immediate attention, this helps pave the way for returning back to normal after the injury and stress that can result from being involved in a car accident. Being in the capable hands of a chiropractor can help ease the minds and bodies of those injured in order for health and wellness to be restored.

Even if you arent experiencing more noticeable symptoms of whiplash like muscle stiffness or pain in your neck or spine, make an appointment with one of our chiropractors before settling with your insurance company.

Soft Tissue Injury SYMPTOMS include, muscle stiffness, neck pain, numbness and tingling into arms or legs, low back pain, fatigue, muscle spasms, headache, mid-back pain, difficulty sleeping, sore achy muscles, whiplash, difficulty concentrating. **Improper healing of soft tissue injuries can cause arthritis and long-term pain.** Don't settle with your insurance company until your injuries have been thoroughly documented and treated.

And, you have the right to choose the doctor you want to treat your Pompano Beach auto injury. Get the medical attention you deserve by law.

What is a whiplash injury?
Whiplash is a generic term for injuries most commonly associated with rear-end vehicle collisions, although frontal or side impacts, as well as other types of accidents, may produce similar injuries. In a rear-impact collision, the following sequence occurs:
- The body is propelled forward.
- The head remains in its original position; then, before the neck muscles can relax to allow motion, the head is abruptly moved backward, often farther than its standard range of motion.
- A rebound action occurs when the body stops suddenly and momentum forces the head and neck forward.
The injury itself is usually a tear/stress of soft tissues in the neck caused by sudden, forceful movement. Symptoms may occur immediately, or the injury may not be recognized until hours or even days after the trauma occurred.
What are the symptoms of a whiplash injury?
A whiplash injury victim may experience one or more of a variety of symptoms: muscle spasms, cervical spine pain, headaches, shoulder/neck pain, nausea, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, dizziness, concussion, limited range of motion, numbness, or reduced ability to hold the head erect. Again, none of these symptoms may show up immediately after the accident; there may be a gap of anywhere from several hours to a few days before anything unusual is experienced. The extent of the injury depends upon not only the severity of the actual accident, but of any potentially complicating factors experienced before the accident, such as a previous spinal injury or surgery, advanced age, congenital spinal problems, etc.
How do people recover after a whiplash injury?
That depends on several factors: the severity of the injury, the type of treatment needed to recover, how soon the injury is attended to, etc. Your healthcare professional can perform a thorough evaluation of the injured area, and should be consulted as soon as possible after any automobile collision, no matter how minor. Contrary to popular belief, there is generally no correlation between the extent of personal injury and the amount of damage to the vehicles involved.
How long does it take to recover?
Again, it depends on the factors mentioned above: severity of injury, needed treatment, and length of time between accident and professional evaluation. Your chiropractor can best answer that question.
