Headache and Car Accidents

Headache is a common condition after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Rebekah Nunn sees often in our Tulsa, OK office. Why is headache such a common symptom after an auto collision? How can your chiropractor help you recover?

 

There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, 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 frequent cause of pain after a crash that we see in our Tulsa, OK 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 creation of scar tissue.

 

Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.

 

If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're experiencing headache, Dr. Rebekah Nunn is here to help. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to determine the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
