We deal with many car crash cases in our Juneau office, and a typical symptom we see in our patients is headache. If you are suffering from headache after an auto injury, don't worry. Dr. Messerschmidt sees this type of problem frequently in our Juneau office. Your chiropractor in Juneau can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car crash, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and pain. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Juneau 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 care for this type of problem to prevent the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic Care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
