Headache and Car Accidents
We work with many car accident cases in in our Mid-Wilshire, LA office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Why is headache such a common condition after a car accident? How can chiropractic care help you recover?
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a wreck, 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 pain after a crash that we see in our Mid-Wilshire, LA 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 avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Dr. Joseph Hakimi can help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
