If you suffer from headache after a car accident, you're not alone. Dr. Phelts sees this type of condition very often in our New York office. Chiropractic 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 a car crash, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and soreness. These kinds 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 New York 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 therapy for this type of problem to avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
