Headache is a common symptom after a car accident, and it’s something that Dr. Kaden sees frequently in our Redondo Beach office. Why is headache such a common condition after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you get better?
There are many different types of headache. Headache that’s triggered by a car crash, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and soreness. These kinds 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 Redondo Beach 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 therapy for this type of problem to avoid the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
