Headache and Car Crashes

We manage many car accident cases in in our Phoenix, Mesa, AZ office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. What causes headache after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help?

There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and discomfort. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.

Another common cause of headache after a crash that we see in our Phoenix, Mesa, AZ 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 prevent the development of scar tissue.

Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
