Headaches After a Car Accident

People involved in automobile accidents can sustain mild or severe injuries. However, a common complaint after a car accident is frequent headaches. Headaches can cause so much pain for the person that it could interfere with his or her life. Fortunately, chiropractic medicine can help. Here at Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark, our doctors of chiropractic can effectively treat your headaches without the need to resort to invasive surgeries or potentially dangerous painkillers.


Auto Accidents Can Trigger Chronic Headaches

Both drivers and passengers can sustain minor or life-alternating injuries during an auto accident. For instance, high-speed impacts can cause drivers and passengers to hit their heads against objects like an airbag. While airbags save lives, they strike drivers and passengers with significant force that ultimately causes a misalignment in the spine or vertebrae, triggering headaches. Even those who do not receive a direct blow to the head can experience a series of chronic headaches. Whiplash, for example, occurs when the head and neck rapidly and suddenly moves forward and backward after an auto impact, causing all manner of stress and trauma in the head, neck, and spine.

The best thing you can do to stop the headaches, if you suffer from them after an auto accident, is to seek out chiropractic treatment. Our Diamond State chiropractors can do a complete assessment of your injuries and work with you to develop a care plan that will suit your personal and medical needs to keep your headaches at bay.

Chiropractic Care Can Be Effective in Treating Chronic Headaches

Chiropractic medicine, like spinal adjustments, muscle strengthening exercises, and lifestyle changes, has been shown to help relieve undue pressure on nerves, muscles, and tendons to reduce headaches and related symptoms after a traumatic event. It is because chiropractic treats the root of a problem and not the symptoms only. Also, it is a non-invasive and no prescription drugs are involved, making it that much more effective when treating headaches.
