Headache is a common symptom after a car accident, and it's something that Dr. Dahlager sees often in our Noblesville office. The key to recovering from headache caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by a car accident, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling 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 pain after a collision that we see in our Noblesville 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 care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
