We manage many car accident cases in in our Waldorf, MD office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. Let's look at the root cause of headache after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help.
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 crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling and soreness. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another common cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Waldorf, MD 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 care for this type of problem to prevent the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
