At White House Chiropractic, we provide full body care to help bring pain relief to patients who have been injured in a car wreck. For many patients, that includes alternative treatments for auto accident related headaches that are not alleviated by solely seeing a general practitioner.
Causes of Auto Accident Headache
According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), the spine is divided into four sections that include the neck, upper back, lower back, and pelvis. Each of those sections includes vertebrae, discs, ligaments, nerves, and a portion of the spinal cord.
Should you suffer whiplash or a back injury from an auto accident, you may then experience muscle stiffness, damaged vertebrae or discs, as well as pinched nerves. All of which can contribute to and cause car accident headaches, migraines, and even TMJ.
How Chiropractic Treatments Can Reduce Accident Headaches
Dr. Banning will first determine what’s causing your pain and then work with you to create a treatment plan to bring relief.
Chiropractic spinal decompression and adjustments can help alleviate auto accident headaches by realigning the spine joints, which can reduce stress, inflammation, nerve pressure, and muscle tension.
Therapeutic massage and/or advanced cold laser treatments may also be recommended. Therapeutic massage brings headache relief by reducing stress and tension from inflammation and scar tissue formation. Advanced cold laser treatments can help reduce inflammation caused by trauma and bruising after an auto accident.
Lifestyle changes and light exercises may also be suggested as part of a long-term plan for treatment of headaches and migraines.
