Headache and Car Accidents
We manage many car accident cases in in our Harrisburg office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. Let's see why headache is frequently experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered 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 causes swelling and soreness. These kinds 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 Harrisburg office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite common after a crash, and it's important to get care for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
