If you have headache after a car crash, don't worry. Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes sees this type of problem frequently in our State College, PA office. Let's take a look at why headache is commonly experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car crash, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in inflammation and discomfort. These kinds 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 collision 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 very common after a crash, and it's important to get therapy for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
