Understanding and Managing Head Trauma After an Accident

Different types of head trauma can significantly impact your life after an accident, each stemming from distinct causes. Finding relief for your specific head injury necessitates identifying its root cause, enabling targeted and effective treatment.

For individuals experiencing head trauma following an accident, it's essential to recognize that symptoms may escalate over time. If you find that your discomfort persists or traditional remedies prove ineffective, seeking professional assistance from NYPMR is crucial.

Contrary to common belief, any level of head trauma warrants attention. Post-accident head trauma may manifest in various forms, including tension in the muscles, sinus discomfort, or issues related to neck injuries sustained in the accident.

Treatment for head trauma sustained in an accident varies depending on the type and severity of symptoms. While medications can provide temporary relief, addressing underlying factors such as posture, stress, and physical injuries sustained in the accident is essential for long-term management.

At NYPMR, our comprehensive approach to treating post-accident head trauma may include chiropractic adjustments, cervical decompression therapy, and PEMF therapy, tailored to your specific needs.

By addressing the root cause of your symptoms and providing ongoing support and guidance, we help you navigate your recovery journey after your accident.
