If you are suffering from headache after an auto collision, you're not alone. Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes sees this type of condition frequently in our State College, PA office. Let's look at the root cause of headache after an auto injury and see how chiropractic care can help.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car accident, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and soreness. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another common cause of headache after a crash that we see in our State College, PA 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 treatment for this type of problem to avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes can help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
