Headache and Car Crashes
If you suffer from headache after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Jamie Stern sees this type of problem frequently in our Sunnyvale & San Francisco, CA office. 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 kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a wreck, 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 pain after a collision that we see in our Sunnyvale & San Francisco, CA 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 treatment for this type of problem to avoid the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the swelling and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
