Neck problems can often result in headaches and sometimes dizziness, both of which have been shown to respond to chiropractic treatment. There is also evidence that chiropractic treatment can be effective in the management of migraines. Apart from spinal manipulation we often use a variety of other techniques such as low level laser, soft tissue work, dry needling and supervised rehabilitative exercise. These rehabilitative exercises have been shown to improve the kind of headaches that are caused by neck problems.
The management of neck and shoulder injuries following car accident is quite complex. Usually the earlier you seek treatment the more favourable the outcome. Like headaches we manage neck injuries through a combination of gentle spinal manipulation, soft tissues work, laser, dry needling and supervised rehabilitative exercise.
