We work with many car accident cases in in our Gadsden, AL office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. Why is headache such a common symptom after an auto collision? How can chiropractic care help you heal?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a crash, 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 common cause of pain after a crash that we see in our Gadsden, AL 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 treatment for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Gadsden Family Chiropractic can help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
