We work with many auto injury cases in in our Memphis office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Chiropractic 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 a car crash, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, 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 headache after a crash that we see in our Memphis 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 creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Dr. Amodeo can help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
