We treat many car accident cases in in our Mt Sterling office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Chiropractic can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes headache and why chiropractic works.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes 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 pain after a collision that we see in our Mt Sterling 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 care for this type of problem to protect against the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Dr. Tolson can help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
Dr. Tolson has been helping patients in Mt Sterling since 2000, so we know what you're going through. We're here to help you, too. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your pain and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy.
