We deal with many car crash cases in our Tucson office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. If you have headache after an auto injury, don't worry. Dr. Conlee sees this type of problem frequently in our Tucson office. Chiropractic in Tucson can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling 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 pain after a collision that we see in our Tucson 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 Therapy is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the swelling and pressure in your neck, which will help reduce the headache pain.
Dr. Conlee is here in Tucson to help you recover from headache. We've been helping patients for many years and we can probably help you, too. 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?
