Headache and Car Crashes

We work with many car accident cases in in our Metro Atlanta office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Let's look at why headache is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic care can help you get better.

There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car accident, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling and soreness. These kinds 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 collision that we see in our Metro Atlanta office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start 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 effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
