Headache and Car Crashes
If you suffer from headache after an auto injury, don't worry. Dr. Lipsitz sees this type of condition very often in our Waldorf, MD office. Let's take a look at why headache is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car accident, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling 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 headache after a collision that we see in our Waldorf, MD office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is very common after a crash, and it's important to get treatment for this type of problem to avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
