Headache Common After Auto Injury

North County St. Louis, MO Headache Treatment

Headache is another common problem Dr. Mark Holland works with in our North County St. Louis chiropractic office. Many headaches actually originate in the neck, and so it's not surprising that it's a symptom that is frequently experienced after a car crash.

Headaches that are caused by a car crash fall into four general categories:

  • Cervicogenic headache, or those that are caused by injury to the cervical spine (neck).
  • Tension headaches, caused by strain or tearing of the neck muscles.
  • Migraine headaches, which can be an indicator for some kind of vascular injury.
  • Brain injury, which can be brought about by severe crashes or direct head trauma.

The course of treatment for your headache after an auto injury will be dependent on what caused the problem in the first place. The staff at Chiropractic of North County are here to help you recover. Give our office a call today at (314) 867-8888 for an appointment.
