If you suffer from headache after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Green sees this type of problem frequently in our Estero, Bonita Springs office. 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 caused by a car accident, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation 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 Estero, Bonita Springs 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 care for this type of problem to avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
