After a car accident, headaches are a common complaint among accident victims. Often, these headaches are caused by injuries to the neck, head, or spine, such as whiplash or a concussion. Fortunately, chiropractic care can provide effective treatment for these types of headaches.
When you first visit our clinic, our car accident doctors will perform a thorough examination to determine the cause of your headaches. This examination may include a review of your medical history, a physical assessment of your neck, head, and spine, and imaging tests, such as x-rays or MRIs. Once we have identified the cause of your headaches, we will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
One of the primary techniques we use to treat headaches is spinal adjustments. These adjustments involve the manipulation of the vertebrae in the spine to help realign the spine and alleviate pressure on the nerves that may be causing headaches. Our car accident doctors may also use massage therapy, rehabilitative exercises, and other forms of treatment to help alleviate pain and promote healing.
