Hull Chiropractic Offers Treatment For Headaches After Car Accidents
Individuals may sustain injuries in an automobile accident that leads to frequent headaches that impact their ability to perform on the job or enjoy their leisure time. These problems can be managed with chiropractic care, without the use of drugs or invasive surgeries. At Hull Chiropractic in Indianapolis, IN, we offer techniques to relieve headache pain after car accidents.
Car Accidents May Cause Frequent or Chronic Headaches
Drivers and passengers can sustain a number of different types of injuries during a car accident. Impacts may cause you to hit your head on the side door or be struck by unsecured items in the car interior. Though airbag saves lives, they can also produce injuries to the face, jaw, and head that can lead to chronic headaches. You don’t even have to experience a direct blow to the head or face to sustain an injury that affects muscles, tendons, and nerves. Whiplash, an injury of the neck that occurs from the rapid forward-and-backward movement during impact, can also be the source of frequent headaches after an accident. Your chiropractor can provide a thorough assessment of your injury and will design a care plan to suit your individual needs.
Chiropractic Treatment Can Relieve Headache Problems
Frequently, the underlying cause of headaches after a car accident is misalignment in the spinal structures and damage to vertebrae in the neck and upper back. Chiropractic methods can help to relieve the pressure on muscles and nerves that result in frequent headaches. Manual adjustment re-aligns spinal structures and a variety of techniques help to improve muscle healing and function in the neck. Corrective exercise helps to strengthen supporting muscles and improve movement. Massage improves circulation in the upper cervical area of the spine, allowing better mobility. If necessary, spinal decompression can help to relieve pressure on discs and vertebrae. In addition, your Indianapolis chiropractor can advise you on ergonomic improvements in your work and home environment to improve comfort and prevent additional injury.
