If you are suffering from headache after a car accident, don't despair. Dr. Weinberg sees this type of condition very often in our Smyrna, GA 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 types of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto collision, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and discomfort. These types 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 collision that we see in our Smyrna, GA office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite 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 excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
