Fast Headache Relief After a Car Accident
Headaches are a common side effect of car accidents in Albuquerque. At Health Quest Chiropractic, we know how important it is to get back to normal life after a car accident, so we use a variety of natural, non-invasive techniques to help our patients find headache relief.
Why Car Accidents Cause Headaches
Car accidents can cause injury to the neck and head. When this happens, the muscles in the neck become stiff and tight. Muscle tension in the neck can cause pain that radiates up into the scalp, creating a headache.
In addition, some car accident victims experience a condition known as whiplash. This condition, also known as neck strain, occurs when the muscles and ligaments in the neck develop tiny tears. Whiplash causes muscle tension, headaches, blurred vision and other symptoms.
How Your Chiropractor Can Help?
At Health Quest Chiropractic, we help our patients with a technique called spinal adjustment. This technique, which is performed by hand or with tools, can realign the vertebrae, relieve muscle tension and improve communication between the brain and the rest of the body. Spinal adjustment helps the body heal after an accident occurs, thus helping our patients find relief from symptoms like headaches.
Spinal adjustment has other benefits as well!
- Reduces inflammation
- Improves range of motion
- Stops compensatory postures
- Eliminates subluxations
- Improves immunity
In addition to spinal adjustment, we use massage therapy to relax the muscles in the neck and spine, providing natural pain relief for our patients.
