Headache is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Ashkan Aazami sees frequently in our Landover Hills, District Heights and Rockville, MD office. Chiropractic can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes headache and why chiropractic works.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling and discomfort. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another frequent cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Landover Hills, District Heights and Rockville, MD office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is very common after a crash, and it's important to get treatment for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Dr. Ashkan Aazami can help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
