Headache is a common symptom after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Lipsitz sees often in our Waldorf, MD office. What causes headache after an auto collision? How can a chiropractor 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 cervical spine. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and soreness. These kinds 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 Waldorf, MD 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 care for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Dr. Lipsitz can help reduce the swelling and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
