Find Whiplash Relief In The Experienced Hands Of Charlotte Family Chiropractic Clinic

The most common cause of a whiplash injury is a car accident. The amount of auto accidents in North Carolina rise every year. With more and more people moving to our beautiful state, the more cars are on the road.

You can sustain a whiplash injury snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, or just taking a bad fall. No matter how you injure yourself the damage is the same.

When your neck moves beyond the normal range of motion there is tearing and straining of the soft tissue. That damage can cause a lot of pain. The most common symptoms of whiplash are neck pain, headaches, difficulty swallowing, brain fog, dizziness, and vertigo.

Although most people think of neck pain as the primary injury during whiplash, lower back pain may also result when the soft tissue is damaged. When the tissue is damaged scar tissue forms and decreases the proper movement of the joints. This improper movement will lead to neck pain, back pain, headaches, and dizziness.

Chiropractic adjustments help restore motion to the area that has been damaged during the initial injury. When proper movement is restored the body is able to heal and the pain decreases.

Who Should You See If You Have A Whiplash Injury?

The most important thing to think about when seeking medical care is asking the question: does this doctor have success with other whiplash patients?

We have been helping people in the Charlotte, North Carolina area for 14 years and have seen many cases from minor whiplash injuries to very severe whiplash traumas.

Here in the Charlotte area many of our chiropractic clients are outdoor enthusiasts and people with active, busy lifestyles. Sitting on the sidelines isn't an option, which is why they come to us for neck pain treatment and, ultimately, relief.

Can I Use My Insurance To Cover A Whiplash Injury?


If you have been in an auto accident you most likely have Med Pay that you can use for medical expenses.

Here at Charlotte Family Chiropractic Clinic, we will take care of all the billing for you. All you have to do is focus on getting better. It is very stressful being in a car accident, the last thing you should have to think about is dealing with the insurance company.

Dr. Plesa is a talented practitioner who focuses on really understanding what is going on with the spine and nervous system. He is warm and inviting and truly cares about improving the lives of his patients.

Whiplash injuries can lead to serious complications often attributed to other health issues. Tissue damage and misaligned spines can interfere with the brain stem, disrupting signals to other parts of the body. Patients come to us after ophthalmologists, neurologists, and somnologists (also known as "sleep doctors") have failed to pinpoint their issues, which may include:

  • Migraines: Cervicalgia is a major cause of headaches, and cervical spine treatment can reduce or eliminate chronic migraine triggers.

  • Vertigo: Doctors often overlook upper cervical disorders as a cause of "the spins" and balance issues. Nerve interference and tissue swelling in the neck is an underlying factor in many vertigo cases.

  • Insomnia and restless sleep: Aches and pains associated with the neck prevent healthy sleep posture and inhibit proper breathing.

  • Mental and physical fatigue: When you don't feel good, it's difficult to sleep, exercise, and do the things that keep you energized, happy, and healthy.

  • Pain in other parts of the body: Neck injuries prevent healthy nerve activity between the brain stem and the rest of the body causing pain that's difficult to diagnose.

These conditions, in turn, often lead to other physical and psychological health problems and affect our productivity, creativity, and enjoyment of life. Our goal here at Charlotte Family Chiropractic Clinic is to get you to function at your highest ability possible. We want you to get back to "being you" and doing the activities you love!

While Dr. Arthur Plesa has in-depth experience treating any whiplash injury however, no two cases are alike. Your first visit will include a comprehensive assessment of your symptoms, and Dr. Plesa believes listening is the first step to spine health. Together, you'll pinpoint the likely cause of your symptoms and he will advise you on modifying your environment and behavior to help prevent ongoing injury. Once we've developed a wellness program that takes lifestyle and pre-existing health issues into account, only then does Dr. Plesa apply specialized cervical chiropractic treatments.

Dr. Plesa's specialties as a chiropractor in Charlotte are neck pain, vertigo, and migraine headaches. Our patients visit our Charlotte office from all over Northern Carolina, including, Matthews, Indian Trail, Mint Hill, Harrisburg, Concord and Gastonia.

Contact Charlotte Family Chiropractic Clinic today to schedule a free consultation. Specialized upper cervical chiropractic care is by no means a "hail Mary" solution, but if you haven't yet seen Dr. Plesa, you're nowhere close to running out of options.
