Common symptoms of whiplash may include:
 *  Headaches
 *  Neck pain and restricted movement.
 *  Pain or numbness in the arms and/or hands
 *  Dizziness, bluured vision and Ringing in the ears
 *  Fatigue, irritability and nervousness
At the Miami Accident Clinics our team of specialists can establish a treatment plan for whiplash, chronic pain, or headaches resulting from auto accidents. Our programs can include neurological evaluation, psychology, chiropractic, physical and massage therapies as well as x-ray. MRI and other neuro-diagnostic examinations are also available when deemed necessary by the physician.

The Miami Accident Clinics employ a multi-specialty team approach in providing care to patients. Our specialists have successfully treated thousands of injury and headache cases over the past 20 years. This unique level of experience is applied to every patient and every situation. Consequently, results assure clinical excellence, cost effectiveness and, most importantly, personalized care that's helps promote quicker recovery,

As car accidents happen more frequently today and at higher speeds, whiplash injuries have become nearly routine on local roads and highways. The injury itself is never routine. However, it is sometimes overlooked by the family practitioner or emergency room doctor. Their training and experience leads them to immediate concern for shock, possible broken bones and mending of acute abrasions. Unless neck injury is readily apparent and victims express feelings of pain, whiplash can get low priority in the hospital emergency room. Whiplash symptoms can occur immediately or not present themselves for weeks or months following the accident.

At the Miami Accident Clinics we can detect the signs and symptoms of whiplash when a patient seeks help at one of our clinics. More importantly, we know the questions to ask accident victims and how to evaluate their answers!

The Miami Accident Clinics team of physicians will documents the signs of the whiplash injury and then confirm the findings with x-ray, MRI and neuro diagnostic testing when appropriate. We offer same day appointments (whenever possible). If you suspect you have a whiplash injury, call now for an evaluation! It's painless and most times covered by your automobile insurance.

Whiplash doesn't repair itself ...it only leads to chronic pain, psychological uncertainty and possible spinal arthritis.

If you have been in an accident and have pain, even if it is minor, consult with a doctor who has experience treating accident injuries. Our professional staff has over 20 years experience in managing Personal Injury cases.
