Headache is a common problem after a car accident, and it's something that Dr. Weinberg sees frequently in our Smyrna, GA office. Let's look at why headache is commonly experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic care can help you heal.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car crash, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and discomfort. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of headache after a crash 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 therapy for this type of problem to protect against the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Dr. Weinberg can help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
