If you have headache after a car accident, don't despair. Weary Chiropractic Clinic sees this type of problem frequently in our Prescott office. Chiropractic can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes headache and why chiropractic works.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and pain. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Prescott 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 avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
