We manage many car accident cases in our Kettering 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. Your chiropractor in Kettering can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto collision, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in swelling and pain. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another frequent cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Kettering 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 therapy for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic Treatment is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and stress in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
