Headache treatment in Port St. Lucie, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Tamarac, and Pembroke Pines

While those who have suffered an auto accident injury or a slip and fall injury may experience a persistent headache immediately afterwards, no headache should ever be considered a normal condition. If pain continues, it is imperative that you seek the help of a professional experienced in treating traumatic injuries. A headache often serves as a warning that something detrimental is going on. In the aftermath of a trauma involving the head, neck, and spine, your headache can be caused by whiplash, concussion, or spinal injury.

Car Accidents

When two vehicles collide, the energy propelling them forward comes together to exert thousands of pounds of force, much of which can be transferred to the neck and spine of a person within the car. In many cases this causes the head to snap forward, then instantly back beyond its normal vertical position. This snapping motion is why the injury that often occurs is called whiplash. If the head strikes an unyielding surface, the accident victim can suffer post-concussion syndrome. While headaches may show up immediately, quite often they are "sleepers" that appear days, weeks, or even months later. This is why it's so important to get evaluated by an experienced professional who knows what to look for. Just because emergency room treatment doesn't uncover an injury doesn't mean one hasn't occurred.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Although falls tend to occur more among children and the elderly, it doesn't mean those in-between are immune to a tumble or worse. While most result in scrapes or bruises, a hard fall can cause broken bone and, in cases of forceful impact, neck and back displacement can occur. Such trauma can disturb normal body motion, sowing a seed for problems that can plague a victim for years to come, including chronic migraines and headaches. As in the case of an auto accident injury, it is vital that you be checked out by a team of physicians who can determine the full extent of a slip and fall injury.

A Delray Beach Team Approach

Because the underlying cause of a chronic headache must first be diagnosed before treatment can begin or a pain management regimen prescribed, you may be examined by one or more of our Tamarac Chiropractic, Neurology, or Neuro-Psychology specialists. We may also recommend an MRI, CT scan or other diagnostic test to rule out serious injuries. Once we have identified the cause of your headache, we will work out a comprehensive treatment plan that may include a mix of chiropractic care, massage therapy, pain management, spinal decompression, and/or physical therapy.

Legal Considerations and Accident Insurance in Florida

While your automobile insurance policy should cover your medical expenses, time is of the essence in Florida where if you are not evaluated within two weeks, you forfeit your compensation benefits. So do not delay. Schedule a free headache assessment today.
