We manage many car accident cases in in our Springfield, MA office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. Why is headache such a common problem after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you get better?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in swelling and discomfort. These types 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 collision that we see in our Springfield, MA 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 brought about by car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
