Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) Is Essential In Detecting Hidden Injuries After A Car Accident Whiplash Injury
You were stopped at a red light when another car hit you going 25 mph from behind. It was so sudden. Your neck whipped backward and forward violently. And now you have headaches, neck pain and stiffness that won't go away. Your doctor ordered the usual tests — X-rays CT scan, MRI— which he said came back "normal." So you went home with a prescription for muscle relaxant and pain medicine for your undiagnosed whiplash injury AND you still have no idea why you’re hurting. Weeks after your car accident, you’re still in pain.
Chiropractic is the branch of healing arts that deals with structure and function.
Chiropractors have found that if there is pressure along the spine, irritating and interfering with the nerve, it will cause pain (function). It is highly probable that it will affect muscles, joints, blood vessels and even organs and glands (structure).
It is the chiropractor's job at Coastal Chiropractic Clinic to determine if such a problem exists and if it can be relieved. Advanced technology and extensive diagnostic training assure the chiropractic physician - and you - that the findings are valid and prognosis reliable.
No potential harmful substances are introduced into the body, nor is any part of the body cut away. If your chiropractor cannot find the cause of your problem, you will be referred to another specialist.
Statistics reveal that 85 PERCENT OF PATIENTS TREATED CHIROPRACTICALLY BECOME SYMPTOM-FREE or show improvement. It is possible that some conditions may have progressed to the point where the body's natural recuperative powers have become ineffective.

Also some interesting news:
The speed at which accident victims may be injured in rear-impact car crashes is amazingly low.
Recent research articles have shown that the human threshold for neck injuries in a rear-impact automobile collision is only 2.5 mph.
For years the personal injury field has used 5 mph as a consensus figure for injuries. Brault, et al has shown that the 5 mph figure was indeed double the actual figure. Others have shown that slow speed collisions actually cause more injury than collisions with more vehicle damage.
Common Medical Mistakes:
•Assuming you are not injured because your pain is mild
•Assuming you aren’t hurt because your car wasn’t
•Believing the ER doctor when he or she says “it’s just a strain, you’ll be better in a couple of days…”
•Treating with non auto accident specialists like your general chiropractor, family medical doctor, HMO doctor, etc. Accident injuries are not the same as gardening strains, and require advanced training.

Rest assured all the doctors and therapists at Coastal Chiropractic Clinic are highly trained experts - not only in health & wellness, but also personal injury care.
If you have been in an accident get checked immediately. New Florida laws require a checkup within two weeks or you lose all your health benefits. It is common to feel little or no pain just after an accident, a few simple tests by an expert can determine if there are any injuries.
Hometown news was great and published this picture of the Ribbon Cutting!
We are so happy in our new office! Finally we have room to breathe and expand our services to help more and more people live healthier and happier lives.
We are continuing to make improvements to the building and the layout so that every patient is able to receive the best care possible with the best results possible. I'm going to include a few pictures of our updated treatment room as well. We've added half walls to increase privacy while getting adjusted.
Patients will continue to get the same great results as before with no wait times.
The best news of last week was that we are now able to offer
We had some helpers cut the ribbon.
It is now official! We have been in the new office for two weeks and it is AWESOME! We made it official on Thursday with our ribbon cutting ceremony (thank you City of Edgewater). We had a great turnout to enjoy tours of the new office and see all the great improvements for our patients. Everyone enjoyed the catered food from Blue Mule Deli in Edgewater and Beef O Brady's in New Smyrna Beach. Most got to enjoy the free chair massages and we gave away lots of great gift baskets from Ramunto's Pizza, Heath's Health food, and many others.
Everything is so much better about this office I don't know where to start. Let's start with the
“The hands-on, active care of doctors of chiropractic and their advice on a healthy lifestyle are essential to our military men and women.”
Retired U.S. Army Brigadier General & First Female West Point Graduate to be promoted to that position— Becky Halstead BRIGADIER GENERAL
Most everyone is thinking of what to cook on the grill about right now in preparation for Memorial Day. Well, maybe it's just me, but I wanted to take a minute to remember those who served and how we can serve them. I had the privilege of hearing General Beck Halstead speak in person about her experience with chiropractic care.
I recently read an article on the side effects of chiropractic care. They include better breathing, fewer or no headaches, increased range of motion, and a improved sense of well being to name a few.
On the other hand I enjoy listening to the list of side effects that great new medication the TV told me to ask my doctor about. It said suicide was rare.
Trick question. But that also means whatever you answered you are probably right (unless you said "I don't know).
Inflammation is the body's natural response to promote healing after injury or damage to the body. In this case, acute inflammation, it is GOOD.
When acute inflammation becomes chronic inflammation it is BAD. Chronic inflammation has been associated with cancer, diabetes, depression, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's. Is that a big enough list for you?
How does chronic inflammation start in the body and how can you avoid it?
1. Eat - You are what you eat. You are either increasing the inflammation in your body by your diet or decreasing inflammation. Avoid excess grains, soda, sugars, hydrogenated oils, packaged foods, and dairy. Eat fruits and vegetables, fish, grass fed meat, nuts, spices (ginger, turmeric, garlic) red or sweet potatoes, and drink lots of water.
2. Stress - an increase the in the hormone cortisol due to stress has been linked to increase in obesity and inflammation. Decrease stress by getting enough sleep and exercise.
3. Probiotics - Research has shown that a good probiotic can decrease inflammation in the gut and throughout the body.
The most common symptom of chronic inflammation we see in the office is PAIN. Often with some nutritional support and supplements we can reverse the chronic inflammation in the body and allow the body to heal properly.

What are you thankful for?
Most people answer family and HEALTH. I've found from past experience that the best gift you can give someone is something they value the most. We can't get you a new family, but we can help with your health (and your family's)!
Chiropractors are excellent at improving neck pain and headaches. What is one thing you can do to improve your neck pain and headaches besides getting adjusted by your chiropractor?
Just in time for gift giving and the holidays we now carry Chiroflow pillows in the office! Research conducted at John Hopkins indicated that Chiroflow pillows reduce intensity of pain, increase pain relief, and improve quality of sleep.
At Coastal Chiropractic we look at all possibilities to help our patients in Edgewater, New Smyrna Beach, Oak Hill, and Port Orange.
For those looking for an even more advanced and specific gift for loved ones this season, we are now distributors for custom made pillows. How is your neck different from mine?
We are all unique sizes, shapes, and have different sleeping patterns. Some sleep on the side, others on the back, and some on the stomach (not good, I'll explain later). Because of these differences it is important to have a pillow that fits your needs.
Ask us how we can make a pillow custom to YOUR needs.
