Headache and Auto Injury
We work with many auto injury cases in in our Beechmont, Ohio office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Why is headache such a common symptom after a car accident? How can chiropractic care help you recover?
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling and discomfort. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of pain after a crash that we see in our Beechmont, Ohio office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is very common after a crash, and it's important to get therapy for this type of problem to avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
