What Causes Headaches and Migraines

When you are involved in a vehicular accident, headaches or migraines may be present along with other injuries. If your head is jolted in any way due to the impact of the accident, trauma to your neck or head may have occurred during the incident. Many people suffer from whiplash after a car accident. Unfortunately, this often comes with headaches due to the stretching of neck muscles. If your head hit any portion of the interior of the vehicle, headaches or migraines could result from the blow.

Symptoms of a Chronic Problem

You may not be sure if the headaches or migraines you are suffering from are the direct results of your vehicular accident or if you have a medical condition that needs tending to. It is best to see your regular physician to rule out health problems not associated with your accident. Headaches or migraines might not start immediately after your accident. They might not begin until days or weeks after the occurrence. Many headaches radiate from the neck region toward the head. Others affect portions of the head depending on the intensity of the impact sustained during the accident.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Our chiropractor will request that you bring any documentation pertaining to your accident with you for your consultation. In many cases, spinal adjustments will help to reduce pain. These movements of the spine will allow for the release of stress placed upon joints in the body. This allows for quicker healing and often helps to reduce headache pain substantially. 

In addition to spinal treatments, our chiropractor will provide you with recommendations to help you treat headaches and keep them from intensifying while you are at home. Reducing stress, staying in quiet and dimly-lit areas, and getting enough rest will all help to keep head pain at a minimum while healing.
