Treating a Headache from an Accident in Los Angeles

A bad headache can be debilitating. When you suffer a bad one, it’s hard to focus and concentrate on anything. So, a headache at work or school can keep you from getting done all the things you want to get done. A headache, while you’re out with friends or family, can ruin even the most fun event. After an auto accident, you may have worse headaches than at any point previously in your life. The Back to Wellness Center can help lessen the headaches so that you can get more enjoyment out of life. In this article, we’ll discuss how our center can help in treating a headache from an accident in Los Angeles.

Headache from Accident in Los Angeles Pain

If you’ve just been in an auto accident, you may instantly get a headache. However, if you’re like a lot of people who have been through an accident, you might feel a headache come on eventually. Maybe it comes in after a few days, a few weeks, or even a few months. But, many of our patients report that they experienced massive headaches after having been in an accident. That’s what our clinic can assist with. We can help you to lessen the effect of those headaches through one of our specialized treatments.

Multiple Treatment Methods

At the Back to Wellness Center, we pride ourselves on offering individualized treatments. That means that we can take many different methods of treatment to find the best one for our patients. For example, after an accident, many of our patients find that chiropractic care can reduce their headaches. Others find that acupuncture treatments can eliminate headaches altogether. Still others have found headache relief from Pilates or massage therapy. Many of our patients receive some mix of each of those treatments. That means that they get some chiropractic care, some massage therapy, some acupuncture, some Pilates – and then, combined, those treatments allow for them to be healthier.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is one of our more popular treatments for dealing with headaches. We’ve found, over the years, that it can be helpful for people who have a very specific injury as well as those who just have an overall “achy” feel. Remember: headaches are rarely caused by just trauma to the head. In fact, these injuries often come about due to an injury to the neck, shoulders or back. So, our physical therapy can deal with all of those issues. Our trained, professional physical therapists figure out exactly where your pain is. That coincides with finding where the decreased function might be. Then, they’re able to put together a total treatment plan that can help you to feel that much better.

Safe, Non-Invasive Treatment

At the Back to Wellness Center, we won’t tell you to take painkillers. Nor will we recommend that you go “under the knife” for some kind of treatment. Each of our treatments here are safe, with no real side effects. That means that you won’t have to be concerned about getting addicted to potentially harmful substances, as painkillers can lead to. By that same token, you won’t have to worry about recovering from a painful, invasive procedure, as you may have to deal with after having gone through surgery. We don’t treat the symptoms, we treat the underlying pain. By directly confronting the pain, we’re able to offer our patients lasting health benefits.

That being said, we always recommend that someone who’s been through a car accident meet with a doctor. Even if you feel unharmed, some injuries may not show any symptoms until they become severe. Additionally, it’s hard to diagnose yourself. So, you may be unaware of you have any internal bleeding or bruising. On top of that, something like a car accident can lead to higher adrenaline levels in your body. Those can mask the pain and symptoms from an accident. Once that adrenaline has receded, then the pain will reveal itself. So, we do recommend you see a doctor. Then, we recommend you come to us.

At our clinic, we can give you a thorough evaluation. That will give our professionals all the information they need to target the pain itself. We aren’t interested in alleviating the pain or simply masking the symptoms. We want to get rid of the pain for good. So, we’ll put you on a plan with the right mix of physical therapy, acupuncture, Pilates and the like. Monitoring your progress all the way, we’ll be able to see how you recover in real time. Our treatments don’t just allow you to heal; they allow you to heal faster. To begin the process of finding the right treatments for your healing, we ask that you head to our site. Or, you can give us a call at (818) 985-2559.
