Headaches & Migraines
Most headaches after an injury are caused by tight muscles in the neck which are compressing the nerves. These headaches resolve as the neck injury resolves. More serious headaches due to a traumatic brain injury should be treated by a neurologist. Although often used interchangeably, a migraine is a specific type of headache. Your chiropractor will take a full history and give you a thorough evaluation to see if chiropractic care is right for your type of headache.
