Headaches After a Car Accident

Even a minor fender bender can create a lot of stress, and a small bump can create a ricochet effect that can cause misalignment in the spine. There can also be a lot of adrenaline at play, and sometimes that means you could be injured, but not feel injured until later. Headaches sometimes do not begin for several days or weeks following the accident. Even if you are not in pain, it is a good idea to be assessed by a chiropractor if you have been in an accident. At the Chiropractic Centers of Dr. Nivholas Capanella and Dr. Joseph Olivacz, we can assess your condition and help you deal with whatever discomfort you have, and predict other complications you may need to face down the line.

Types of Headaches after a Car Accident

While some headaches are only a temporary inconvenience, without proper care it is possible to develop chronic migraines, additional pain in the neck and shoulders, numbness, dizziness, or general fatigue. Headaches can also be triggered by the stress of the accident. Our chiropractors can also assist in helping you release or manage the stress that contributes to headaches and other injuries.

Types of headaches that occur after car accidents include:

  • Whiplash headaches: These are caused by a very fast forward and backward movement
  • Migraine headaches: Migraines can develop after a concussion has occurred, especially if you hit your head during the accident. If your headaches include nausea, light or sound sensitivity, or dizziness, it may be a migraine.
  • Herniated disc headaches:  If the occipital nerve was pinched or compressed during the auto accident, you may feel tingling in your arms or legs in addition to your headache
  • Muscle spasm headaches: When the muscles in the neck are strained, you may develop soft tissue injuries in the area that lead to headaches that can worsen with movement.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "'ve been in chronic pain with my neck and shoulder for over a year. I had several months of physical therapy, which gave me some improvement. But after one session with Dr. Campanella I started seeing improvement and even was able to sleep. After 4 sessions he said I was done for now; I can always come back for a tune-up; which I've done for my sciatica over the last few years."

  • "Fantastic experience every time. No wait time once you are checked in- YES- at a doctor's office! All office staff personable and responsive. The office itself is clean and comfortable. Cannot rave highly enough about Dr. Joe and the various treatments I have received through the years to relieve the muscle pain resulting from spinal fusion surgery. He is also an advocate of massage therapy in conjunction with adjustments which has always been the hallmark of a great chiropractic doctor for me. Adjustments are not always needed, and all treatments/therapies release my pain and symptoms."
