We work with many car accident cases in in our Highland Park, Saint Paul, Minnesota office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Let's look at the root cause of headache after an accident and see how chiropractic care can help.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car crash, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in swelling and soreness. 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 collision that we see in our Highland Park, Saint Paul, Minnesota 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 therapy for this type of problem to protect against the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
