Mulholland Chiropractic Center, LLC sees this type of problem very often in our Anchorage office. Why is headache such a common problem after a car accident? How can chiropractic care help you get better? Let's look at the root cause of headache after an auto collision and see how your chiropractor can help. 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 can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto collision, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and pain. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another frequent cause of headache after a crash that we see in our Anchorage 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 protect against the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
