We treat many car accident cases in in our Arlington, VA office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Dr. Holcombe can help you.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in swelling and discomfort. These types 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 crash that we see in our Arlington, VA 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 prevent the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
