Have you ever experienced sitting in traffic in a car wreck after another driver cut your lane? Was the damage to your car was minimal, but you feel constant throbbing in your neck and head? Over the next few days, do your headaches became increasingly severe and you also experience add-on symptoms like pulsing pain and sensitivity to light and sound? 

Before the accident, you never experience migraines before, and now they keep disrupting your daily life. So you begin asking yourself: “Will this be my reality?” and “Will I become a slave to migraine pain?”. 

If all these sound quite familiar to you, then you’re in the right place! This article will help you understand what is happening to you, how it happened, and how you can free yourself from the debilitating condition of migraine with the help of a Doctor of NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City.

The Hidden Culprit of Post-Accident Migraines

When you're in a car accident, your body is subjected to a sudden and intense force that can cause a variety of injuries. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in car accidents, and it occurs when your head is violently jerked forward and then backward, causing your neck to move beyond its normal range of motion. This sudden motion can damage the delicate ligaments and muscles in your neck, leading to pain, stiffness, and headaches. 

But whiplash is not just a painful condition in itself. It can also lead to a condition called atlas subluxation or misalignment. This can cause a variety of health problems, including migraines. When your atlas is out of alignment, it can put pressure on your nervous system and disrupt the flow of blood and oxygen to your brain. This can trigger a migraine, which is a type of headache characterized by intense pain, sensitivity to light and sound, and nausea.

Unfortunately, many people who suffer from migraines don't realize that their condition may be caused by an atlas subluxation. That's why it's important to seek out a qualified medical expert who can help you determine the cause of your migraines and develop a plan to address the underlying issue. That is because by addressing the underlying atlas subluxation, you can not only find relief from your migraines but also improve your overall health and well-being. So if you're struggling with migraines after a car accident, don't suffer in silence. Seek out help immediately.
