Headache is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Weinberg sees frequently in our Smyrna, GA office. 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 kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car crash, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in swelling and discomfort. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another frequent cause of pain after a collision 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 care for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Dr. Weinberg can help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
