We treat many auto injury cases in in our Anderson, Ohio office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. 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 an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a collision, 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 temple.
Another frequent cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Anderson, Ohio 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 care for this type of problem to protect against the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by car crashes. Dr. Nuesse can help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
