If you are dealing with headache after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Russell sees this type of problem frequently in our Henderson, NV office. Chiropractic is a great way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Dr. Russell can help you.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in swelling 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 pain after a crash that we see in our Henderson, NV 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 therapy for this type of problem to protect against the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Dr. Russell can help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
