We treat many car accident cases in in our Arlington, VA office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. What causes headache after a car crash? How can chiropractic help?
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, 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 headache after a collision that we see in our Arlington, VA office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is very common after a crash, and it's important to get therapy for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Dr. Holcombe can help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
