Headache is a common problem after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees 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 and Dr. Janda can help you.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by a car crash, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes inflammation and soreness. These types 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 crash 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 care 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 auto injuries. Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda can help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
