We work with many auto injury cases in in our North County, St. Louis, MO office, and a widespread 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 kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto injury, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes swelling and discomfort. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of pain after a crash that we see in our North County, St. Louis, MO 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 therapy for this type of problem to prevent the development of scar tissue.
