Headache is a common condition after a car accident, and it's something that Dr. Ronda Dalton sees frequently in our Rochester Hills, MI office. The key to recovering from headache caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes inflammation and soreness. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another common cause of headache after a crash that we see in our Rochester Hills, MI 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 care for this type of problem to protect against the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.

Chiropractors, often considered alternative or complementary medicine practitioners, are primary care doctors who focus on good health through proper nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle factors. The chiropractic philosophy is based on the idea that when nerves emerging from the spinal cord are compromised (known as a subluxation), the affected individual might experience pain, disability and an overall decrease in the quality of life.
