In a car accident, I struck my head on the steering wheel. It still causes me to wake up, sleep with headaches, and experience terrible muscle spasms in my back and right shoulder, sometimes making breathing difficult. The muscles at the top of my right shoulder also knot up and feel swollen, like I am pulling something. Kindly help.
I read your query and can understand your concern.
After reading your question, I recommend seeing a chiropractor for your injuries. I worked in a private practice personal injury clinic for over a year, and the damages you describe are what I treated daily. Based on your description of injuries, it sounds as though you have a whiplash injury. I do not know the specifics of your accident, but your insurance will likely pay for your care. My recommendation is to go to a local chiropractor for an exam. They will most likely recommend a trial of care. They should also recommend at-home exercises once you are no longer acute.
I hope I have answered your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
