We manage many auto injury cases in in our Denton, TX office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. Let's look at the root cause of headache after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in swelling and discomfort. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another frequent cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Denton, TX office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate 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 avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
