Headache and Car Accidents

If you are suffering from headache after a car crash, don't worry. Dr. Weinberg sees this type of condition very often in our Smyrna, GA office. What causes headache after an auto collision? How can chiropractic help?

There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in swelling and soreness. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.

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 avoid the creation of scar tissue.

Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Dr. Weinberg can help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.

You don't have to suffer from headache. Dr. Weinberg is conveniently located in Smyrna, GA to help you heal, whether you've been in an auto collision or not.
