Headache is a common condition after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees often in our Henderson, NV office. Let's see why headache is commonly experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and discomfort. 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 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 care for this type of problem to protect against the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda can help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
