Frequently Asked Questions

QA
Can chiropractic care help with headaches?
The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system, which is the only system that is directly protected by bones. The spine is made up of these bones. When certain bones in the neck are out of alignment and unable to move properly, they can put a strain on the nervous system and surrounding muscles, causing headaches. Regardless of the type of headache (tension vs. migraine) or the cause, chiropractic care can be an effective and non-invasive approach to preventing and relieving headaches (stress vs. posture).

It’s critical to have a chiropractic examination to determine the best course of action for reducing the frequency of these headaches and eliminating them completely.

Why am I getting headaches after an auto accident?
A person’s neck is forcibly “whipped” back and forth and side to side during the impact of an auto accident, far beyond its normal range of motion. Whiplash injuries can affect the muscles and tissues of the back and neck as a result. Back and neck pain can cause stiffness right away, or it can take days, weeks, or months to manifest. Even if you are not experiencing neck or back pain, it is critical to treat whiplash right away.

Headaches and migraines are common symptoms of whiplash injuries or any other type of motor vehicle accident. When specific vertebrae in the neck are restricted and out of position as a result of an accident, headaches can develop. Neck muscles that have been strained can cause pain to radiate to the head. Headaches and migraines can be caused by any type of head injury or trauma. If you are suffering from headaches as a result of an auto accident, you should seek treatment as soon as possible to avoid the pain becoming permanent.

At The Pleasant Chiropractor, we specialize in treating whiplash injuries so you can return to your normal life.

Can Chiropractic Care Help with My Neck Pain?
Both acute and chronic neck pain has been shown to benefit from chiropractic treatment. Acute neck pain is characterized by a sharp pain in the neck and the inability to turn your head. Poor posture and sedentary work, such as sitting at a desk and working on a computer for 8 hours a day, can also cause chronic neck pain. This type of pain is typically described as a dull, aching discomfort that is accompanied by stiffness. Specific vertebrae in the neck and upper back may be problematic, resulting in neck pain, whether due to poor posture or sedentary work. Muscles, ligaments, and tendons support our spine, and they can all form scar tissue, complicating the healing process. Chiropractic adjustments are designed to help keep joints in good working order, reduce stiffness, pain, muscle tension, and improve function.

The majority of patients do not want to simply take medication to mask their pain. Unfortunately, most doctors only provide that. We treat neck pain at The Pleasant Chiropractor with advanced techniques that focus on improving nervous and musculoskeletal system function. This is the most effective method for reducing pain and resuming normal function.

Why do I get neck pain following an auto accident?

Whiplash injuries occur when the head or neck is suddenly forced in any direction, resulting in a rebound in the opposite direction. The neck and head’s surrounding and supporting tissues will be affected. As a result, the surrounding muscles tighten, contract, and fatigue more rapidly, causing pain and stiffness. Whiplash is most commonly caused by car accidents.

After an auto accident, a proper evaluation is necessary to determine how you can feel better without the use of medication, which is designed to mask the pain rather than treat the cause of the pain. At The Pleasant Chiropractor, we specialize in assisting people who have been injured in an automobile accident.
