We treat many car accident cases in in our Portland office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Why is headache such a common condition after a car crash? How can your chiropractor help you heal?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car crash, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and discomfort. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another common cause of pain after a crash that we see in our Portland 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 care for this type of problem to protect against the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the swelling and strain in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
