We work with many car accident cases in in our Oakleigh office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. Chiropractic care is a great way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how North Road Chiropractic can help you.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and pain. 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 crash that we see in our Oakleigh 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 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. North Road Chiropractic can help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're suffering from headache, North Road Chiropractic is here to help.
