We manage many auto injury cases in in our Depew office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Your chiropractor can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes headache and why chiropractic works.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto injury, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in swelling and soreness. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Depew office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite common after a crash, and it's important to get therapy for this type of problem to protect against the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
