Can Chiropractic Care Treat Headaches and Migraines?

The central nervous system is a system of nerves that connects to the brain and the spinal cord, and it is the only nerves in the body that are protected by bones. In fact, all the nerves that make up the central nervous system are housed inside of the spine. When one of the vertebrae in the neck area are misaligned with the others, a person can feel a high amount of pressure and stress in neck and head, which can result in headaches and may lead to severe headaches known as migraines.

Chiropractic care can be an effective and non-invasive approach to preventing and relieving the stress and pressure that leads to headaches.

Why Do Headaches Occur After an Auto Accident?

Headaches may arise after an auto accident from a whiplash injury. Immediately after an auto accident, a person will experience shock and the body may not feel much pain right away. During an auto accident, a person's neck is "whipped" back and forth or side to side past its normal range of motion. This is what doctors call Whiplash. Whiplash is an injury that causes pain in the head, neck, and upper back. This injury can begin to produce symptoms almost immediately after the auto accident, but whiplash typically gets worse over time.

Can Chiropractic Care Treat Neck Pain?

Chiropractic care has been shown to be effective in treating acute neck pain and chronic neck pain. Acute neck pain is often described as a sharp pain in the neck that may occasionally prevent a person from completely turning their head. Chronic neck pain is constant pain that may have likely been caused by an injury. The neck is supported by muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the upper back and they can all form scar tissue after an injury, which may further complicate the healing process. Chiropractic adjustments are aimed at helping the joints function properly, decrease pain, reduce muscle tension, and increase functionality.

Why Do I Feel Neck Pain After an Auto Accident?

Neck pain after an auto accident can occur for several reasons, but the most common reason for neck pain after an accident is because of whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a person's head is thrusted back and forth from the impact of the accident. This injury can cause a person to experience acute or chronic neck pain. Chiropractic care has been shown to be effective at helping both acute neck pain and chronic neck pain. Acute neck pain may be felt as a sharp pain in the neck, and you may not be able to turn your head.

Can Chiropractic Care Treat Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain is usually accompanied by neck pain and shoulder pain as it radiates down each arm and causes limited motion. Chiropractic care focuses on the nerves and muscles that stem from the spine and are connected to the shoulders. In most cases, this is the source of pain whether it is caused by a sports injury or sleeping awkwardly. Instances, such as pinched nerves and sore muscles can restrict range of motion and result in poor biomechanics in various parts of the body. Chiropractic care can help shoulder pain by adjusting parts of the back and joints to allow the nerves to communicate freely with the shoulders.

Will Injury Symptoms Show Immediately After an Auto Accident?

Symptoms from an injury can be delayed after an auto accident because a person is experiencing "shock," which is adrenaline that is released into the body as an automatic response to injury or trauma. For instance, a person who suffers from whiplash may feel tense and stiff immediately after the auto accident, but pain may begin to affect them a few hours or a day after the injury. Whiplash causes the tissues in the neck and upper back to overstretch and become inflamed. Once the inflammation reduces, pain may become more apparent. Where some use medications, other resort to alternative measures, such as chiropractic care.
