If you have headache after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees this type of problem very often in our Henderson, NV office. What causes headache after an auto injury? How can a chiropractor help?
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by a car accident, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, 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 headache after a collision that we see in our Henderson, NV office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite common after a crash, and it's important to get treatment 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 car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
