We help many car accident cases in our Lincoln office, and a typical symptom we see in our patients is headache. The key to recovering from headache caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help. Chiropractic care in Lincoln can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto injury, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in 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 Lincoln 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 prevent the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic Treatment is an effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
