We work with many car accident cases in in our Henderson, NV office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. What causes headache after an auto collision? How can chiropractic help?
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 neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling and soreness. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another frequent cause of pain after a collision 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 prevent the development 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 swelling and tension in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
If you've been injured in a car crash and you're suffering from headache, Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda is here to help. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment plan of action.
