We treat many car accident cases in in our Nashville office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. What causes headache after an auto collision? How can chiropractic care help?
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling and soreness. These types 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 Nashville 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 care for this type of problem to avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
