We work with many auto injury cases in in our Beaverton, OR office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Let's look at the root cause of headache after a car accident and see how your chiropractor can help.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto injury, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and soreness. These kinds 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 Beaverton, OR office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate 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.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Dr. Christopher Hugon can help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
Let us help you recover from headache. Dr. Christopher Hugon has helped many patients with the same problem, and we can probably help you, too. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to determine the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
