Auto accidents can cause hidden injuries that can develop into pain, headaches, and arthritis. Most people who have been involved in an auto accident may not even know that they’ve been injured. Dr. Dean Zusmer’s approach to these types of injuries is to use specific chiropractic adjustments, manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, and various other treatment methods to help return spinal motion and alleviate pain. After a thorough examination, evaluation, our Accident Clinic Miami doctors will recommend the necessary care to help restore proper motion and correctly position spinal alignment. If caught early, inflammation can be reduced and scar tissue can often be minimized.

Accident Clinic Miami Whiplash Treatment
Whiplash is a personal injury term used to describe neck pain, stiffness and swelling following an injury to the soft tissues of your neck (specifically ligaments, tendons, and muscles). Whiplash is most commonly associated with rear-end car collisions in which the passenger in the front vehicle get their head forcefully jerked backward and then forward causing injury to the structures of the back and front of the neck. Whiplash happens in auto accidents such as car crashes, auto accidents, and truck accidents, as well as during sporting activities, accidental falls, and assault.
Accident Clinic Miami Sprain and Strain Treatment
Muscles allow movement to happen by contracting and making joints flex, extend and rotate. Muscles attach on each side of the joint to bone by thick bands of tissue called tendons. When a muscle contracts, it shortens and pulls on the tendon, which allows the joint to go through a range of motion.
A strain occurs when the muscle tendon unit is overstretched or torn. The most common reason is the overuse and stretching of the muscle. The damage may occur in three areas:
- The muscle itself may tear.
- The area where the muscle and tendon blend can tear.
- The tendon may tear partially or completely (rupture).
Joints are stabilized by thick bands of tissue called ligaments which surround them. These ligaments allow the joint to move only in specific directions. Some joints move in multiple planes; therefore, they need more than one group of ligaments to hold the joint in proper alignment. The ligaments are anchored to bone on each side of the joint. If a ligament is stretched or torn, the injury is called a sprain.
Accident Clinic Miami Lower Back Pain Treatment
Lower back pain is one of most prevalent types of chronic pain. The tremendous forces created during auto accident are enough to tear apart soft tissue and shatter bone. Life altering spinal injuries are often the result of serious automobile wrecks, however, even minor fender benders can create some significant back ache complaints.
The spine is the most important part of our skeletons. Spinal injuries are common in automobile accidents. Vertebral fracture and spinal instability can result from the nightmarish force of a high speed collision.
