    Personal Injury

     Dr. Jeff is currently one of the few doctors in the state of Georgia who is specialized in whiplash injury from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego.  He is a graduate with Advanced Certification of Competency in Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology.  Over the past years Dr. Jeff has studied with some of the best Chiropractors in the United States and has worked side by side with greatest minds to ensure the best possible care for each personal injury patient.  Each car accident or personal injury is different for each patient and it is very important to identify and treat each patient accordingly.

    Whiplash Injuries is expected by many to be one of controversy. The controversy about whiplash, however, is largely manufactured. Whiplash controversy is propagated by those who benefit from it or those who are simply uninformed about whiplash. In contrast, recognizing that whiplash -in all its manifestations- is a real and significant public health burden, international consortia of automobile insurers from North America to Europe, Japan to Australia, are actively engaged in whiplash research. Whiplash research conducted by the Spine Research Institute of San Diego (SRISD), for example, compliments that of the European Whiplash Consortium and the International Insurance Whiplash Prevention Group (IIWPG) formed by Allianz Zentrum fur Technik (AZT), the German Insurance Institute for Traffic Engineering (GDV), the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and the Motor Insurance Repair Research Center (MIRRC), Thatcham. The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has also been continuously engaged in whiplash research for many years. SRISD has also worked with members of these international groups in the validation of the highly specialized rear impact dummies, the RID2 (First Technology Safety Systems) and the BioRID II (Denton ATD, Inc). International whiplashconferences take place annually in Europe and the U.S., attracting whiplash researchers, whiplash clinicians, governmental whiplash representatives, manufacturers, and whiplash educators from all parts of the globe who come together to present their whiplash research and to learn from others how best to deal with this growing pandemic, whiplash. Conspicuously absent from these meetings are the purveyors of the very small body of literature which suggests that true whiplash injuries are unlikely, insignificant, and primarily the product of greed and avarice.   -  Spine Research Institute of San Diego -
