We treat many auto injury cases in in our Nashville office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Let's look at why headache is frequently experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic care can help you get better.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car crash, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, 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 forehead.
Another frequent cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Nashville 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 creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Sweeney Chiropractic can help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
Sweeney Chiropractic is here in Nashville to help you recover from headache. We've been helping patients since 2004 and we can probably help you, too. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy.
