Headache and Car Accidents

We treat many auto injury cases in in our Henderson, NV office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Chiropractic care is a great way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda can help you.

There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto collision, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and soreness. These types 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 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 very common after a crash, and it's important to get therapy for this type of problem to prevent the development of scar tissue.

Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
