If you are suffering from headache after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Holland sees this type of condition frequently in our North St. Louis, MO office. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Dr. Holland can help you.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling and pain. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of headache after a crash that we see in our North St. Louis, MO 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 prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
