Auto Accident Injuries

An injury from an auto accident may not be evident until days after the accident happened. Even if you are not feeling pain, we recommend scheduling a consultation with us after your collision. A chiropractic evaluation will prevent minor aches from becoming significant pains. Discover Chiropractic & Rehabilitation provides treatment to all ages. We use a specialized approach when treating children. All family members who were in the collision will benefit from a post-accident evaluation.

Causes of Headaches After a Car Accident

Whiplash: This is an injury that happens when an accident causes your head to be vigorously flung forward and backward. This forceful movement can injure nerves, neck tissues, bones within the spine, and muscles. Many individuals who have experienced whiplash recover within weeks while others have continuous pain for months or even years. You could potentially have chronic pain if your initial pain is severe.

Concussion: A concussion is caused by a blow to the head during an accident, where the brain bounces backward and forward inside of the skull. Shortly after an accident or days later, you may experience confusion, memory loss, dizziness, blurred vision, or nausea for a period of time. Most individuals make a full recovery following a concussion. Symptoms may persist for up to four weeks.

Traumatic brain injury: This type of injury can have a broad range of psychological and physical effects. While some symptoms present themselves immediately, others may evolve days or even weeks later.

Treatment Options for Head and Neck Pain

Chiropractic care can include many different treatment options. Chiropractic adjustments, deep tissue massage, physical therapy, and spinal decompression are all very effective methods of treatment for headaches, migraines, and neck pain. Chiropractic care, whether used alone or in conjunction with one or more treatment options, restores balance to the body by realigning the physical structure and minimizing inflammation.
