If you have headache after an auto collision, don't worry. Dr. Palmer sees this type of condition very often in our Depew office. What causes headache after an auto collision? How can a chiropractor help?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and soreness. These types 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 Depew 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 protect against the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
You don't have to suffer from headache. Dr. Palmer is conveniently located in Depew to help you recover, whether you've been in a car crash or not.
