We manage many car accident cases in in our Moon Township office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. Let's look at the root cause of headache after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in inflammation and pain. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another frequent cause of headache after a crash that we see in our Moon Township 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 treatment for this type of problem to avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Dr. Spiropoulos can help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
