What Causes Headache and Migraine after an Auto Accident?
Being the victim of an auto accident puts you at greater risk of developing serious injuries. Two of the most common injuries that can cause headaches and migraines after a car accident include whiplash and concussions. Both can take days, weeks, or even months to develop. If you do suffer from whiplash or a concussion, headaches and migraines can be a sign that you need to get professional treatment.
Whiplash is a condition caused by the violent whipping motion that someone's neck experiences during a car accident. Concussions occur when someone hits their head hard enough to cause damage to the brain inside of their skull. This is also known as a traumatic brain injury. In addition, car accidents can also lead to muscle strains and muscle sprains that can lead to headaches, especially if they occur in the upper back muscles.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
A chiropractor on our team can help determine if your headache and migraine is due to an auto accident or another condition. He or she can help determine if you have whiplash or are suffering from a concussion based on physical exams and questions, he or she might ask you. The chiropractor can also help determine if your headaches and migraines are due to sore muscles following an accident.
Once one of our chiropractors helps determine the root cause of your headache and migraine, he or she can provide chiropractic treatment such as manual adjustments to the spine, spinal decompression, and massage therapy to help soothe sore muscles and help release tension causing headaches.
