We work with many car accident cases in in our Tulsa office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. 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 types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car crash, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and soreness. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of pain after a crash that we see in our Tulsa 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 prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Dr. Bogan can help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
