Headache and Auto Injury

Fargo ND Car accident and chiropractic careWe manage many car accident cases in in our Fargo office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Why is headache such a common symptom after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you heal?

There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car accident, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes swelling and pain. 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 collision that we see in our Fargo office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite 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 effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Balance Chiropractic & Rehab can help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
