Headache and Car Accidents

Headache is a common problem after a car crash, and it's something that Full Motion Chiropractic sees often in our Hopkins office. Let's look at the root cause of headache after an accident and see how chiropractic can help.

There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a wreck, 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 frequent cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Hopkins office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite common after a crash, and it's important to get care for this type of problem to protect against the development of scar tissue.

Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Full Motion Chiropractic can help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.

You don't have to suffer from headache. Full Motion Chiropractic is conveniently located in Hopkins to help you heal, whether you've been in a car crash or not. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy. Ready to make an appointment?
