Headache is a common problem after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Kallio sees frequently in our Lincoln office. Your chiropractor can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes headache and why chiropractic works.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes inflammation and discomfort. 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 crash that we see in our Lincoln office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite common after a crash, and it's important to get therapy for this type of problem to prevent the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
