We manage many car accident cases in our Kettering office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. If you have headache after a car accident, you're not alone. Dr. Poelking sees this type of problem very often in our Kettering office. Why is headache such a common condition after an auto collision? How can your chiropractor help you recover? Let's look at the root cause of headache after a car crash and see how your chiropractor can help. 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 can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a crash, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and soreness. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another common cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Kettering 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 development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
