We treat many car crash cases in our Parkland office, and a standard symptom we see in our patients is headache. Why is headache such a common problem after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you heal? Your chiropractor in Parkland can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in swelling and pain. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another frequent cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Parkland office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start 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 prevent the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic Treatment is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
