Headaches After an Auto Injury
After a car accident, many people suffer from injuries. However, these injuries often don’t show symptoms right away. One of the most common injuries from auto accidents is head pain or headaches.

We serve Clifton, Hamilton, Dayton, and Mount Healthy, OH. Our treatment methods focus on promoting natural healing in your body.
Headaches and Migraines
After an auto accident, headaches can occur if there is an injury to your neck. Typically, if you have whiplash, you will likely get headaches or migraines. Our chiropractors will treat headaches, including migraines, through gentle manual manipulation. The manual manipulation allows for the realignment of the upper spinal vertebrae. When the vertebrae become misaligned, they can place pressure on the surrounding nerves. This is usually the source of the headaches. The manual manipulation realigns the vertebrae, removes the pressure, and alleviates the pain. We may also use massage therapy or physical therapy to help alleviate the cause of your headaches.
Another very common injury that results from an auto accident is whiplash. This is a neck injury in which the forceful thrust of the head in a forward and back push strains or sprains the neck. The thrust causes the vertebrae in the neck to become misaligned and place pressure on the nerves. Whiplash often comes with headaches or migraines. This painful condition can be treated with chiropractic care using gentle manual manipulation to bring your spine back into alignment.
