Car accidents can be traumatic and can result in several types of injuries. One of the most common injuries that can last for hours or days after the accident is a headache. At DePietro Chiropractic & Wellness in Peckville, we can help you recover from post-accident headaches. Your life does not have to be interrupted and impacted by headache pain caused by your recent car accident. Start with a conversation with us at DePietro Chiropractic & Wellness to discuss your treatment plan.
A post-car accident headache, also known as a “post-traumatic headache,” usually appears within hours or days of the accident. While it can be the result of a concussion sustained during the accident, it can also be caused by other factors. A chiropractor can diagnose and treat post-traumatic headaches, which, if left untreated, can lead to more serious injuries. Headaches can be one of the most debilitating aftereffects of a car accident.
Even if you haven’t suffered any serious injuries during the accident, the stiffness of muscles in your shoulders, neck, and head can cause pain and soreness around the skull, resulting in a post-traumatic headache. It can take several weeks for the headache to subside.
Y-Strap Treatment Can Help
Dr. DePietro has over 20 years of experience with the Y-Strap, a specialized piece of equipment that resembles a cord with a handle. It can be used to safely manipulate the spinal bones in the neck. The purpose of the Y-Strap technique is to execute what is called the Y-axis adjustment, where the neck and head are pulled along the same direction as the spine. This can help stretch and reset the muscles that are hurt in a car accident, allowing them to relax and treat the headache.
Seeing a Chiropractor Soon Can Help
Chiropractic care is one of the most effective ways to treat people who have been injured in a car accident. Chiropractic techniques can relieve pain and discomfort while treating the injuries that cause them. If you have chronic pain, especially headache pain, from your auto accident, chiropractic adjustments can improve your symptoms and help you return to a pain-free life, giving you long-term relief. With chiropractic care, you can not only recover from a car accident but also improve your overall health in the long term. Our goal is to help you feel better than you did before you were in the accident.
