Headache and Car Accidents
If you are dealing with headache after a car accident, don't worry. Dr. Remond Weinberg sees this type of condition very often in our Atlanta, GA office. The key to recovering from headache caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and pain. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.
Another common cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Atlanta, GA 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 avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
