We manage many auto injury cases in in our Tulsa office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. What causes headache after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, 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 frequent cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Tulsa office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is very 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 brought about by car crashes. Alliance Chiropractic can help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
