Headache Common After Auto Injury

Salem, OR Headache Treatment

Headache is another common problem of patients who come to see us in our Salem, OR chiropractic practice. Many headaches actually originate in the neck, and so it's not surprising that it's a symptom that is frequently experienced after a car crash.

Headaches that are caused by a car crash fall into four general categories:

  • Cervicogenic headaches, or those that are caused by injury to the cervical spine (neck).
  • Tension headaches, caused by strain or tearing of the neck muscles.
  • Migraine headaches, which may be an indicator of some kind of vascular injury.
  • Brain injury, which may be brought about by severe crashes or direct head trauma.

The course of treatment for your headache after an auto injury may be dependent on what caused the problem in the first place. The staff at Robertson Spinal Rehab & Associates are here to assist you with your recovery. Give our office a call today at (503) 399-7607 for an appointment.
