If you have headache after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Weinberg sees this type of condition very often in our Smyrna, GA office. Why is headache such a common condition after a car accident? How can your chiropractor help you heal?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto collision, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and pain. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another common cause of pain after a crash that we see in our Smyrna, GA 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 therapy for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by car crashes. Dr. Weinberg can help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
