Auto Accident Light Sensitivity

If you've been in a car accident, even a minor one, you may be experiencing light sensitivity. Yet, this is a common symptom that various injuries can cause. If you're struggling with light sensitivity, our Hughes Chiropractic and Massage chiropractor in Renton, WA, can help. We understand how difficult it can be to deal with this symptom, and we're here to help you find relief.

What Is Light Sensitivity?

Light sensitivity, also called photophobia, is an intolerance of light. It can be a symptom of many conditions, from migraines to severe injuries. In addition, certain medications can cause it. If you're struggling with light sensitivity, you may find bright lights cause pain or discomfort.

Symptoms of Light Sensitivity after an Accident

After an auto accident, you may start to experience various symptoms. These can include headaches, neck pain, and light sensitivity. The symptoms depend on the severity of your accident and the injuries you've sustained.

If you've been in a car accident, the first signs of light sensitivity may not appear until days or weeks after the accident. This delayed reaction can take time for the symptoms of your injuries to develop. However, if you start to experience light sensitivity, it's essential to see our chiropractor as soon as possible.

How Our Chiropractor Can Help

If you're struggling with light sensitivity, visiting a chiropractor can be a great way to find relief. Chiropractors are trained to treat various injuries that cause light sensitivity. The techniques they use to address these injuries include:

Chiropractic Adjustments

Auto accidents can cause your spine to become misaligned. Chiropractic adjustments involve gentle pressure to realign the spine. This pressure can help relieve pain and improve symptoms like light sensitivity.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can also help treat injuries that cause light sensitivity. In addition, this therapy can relax the muscles and relieve pain. It can also promote healing by increasing blood flow to the area.

Rehabilitation Exercises

Rehabilitation exercises are another treatment option our chiropractor may recommend. These exercises can strengthen the muscles and improve range of motion. In addition, this activity can help relieve pain and promote healing.

Lifestyle Changes

In some cases, our chiropractor may also recommend lifestyle changes. These can include wearing sunglasses or avoiding bright lights. Making these changes can help reduce your symptoms and make it easier to deal with light sensitivity.
