We manage many car accident cases in in our Smyrna, GA office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is headache. Chiropractic can be very helpful for headache symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes headache and why chiropractic works.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by a car crash, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and pain. 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 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 very common after a crash, and it's important to get treatment for this type of problem to protect against the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Dr. Weinberg can help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
