We manage many car accident cases in in our North St. Louis, MO office, and a widespread 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 kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto collision, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, 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 forehead.
Another common cause of pain after a collision 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 therapy for this type of problem to avoid the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Dr. Holland can help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
