We help many auto injury cases in our Arlington office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. The key to recovering from headache caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help. Chiropractic care in Arlington can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a crash, 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 common cause of pain after a crash that we see in our Arlington 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 treatment for this type of problem to prevent the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic Therapy is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by car crashes. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
