Headache is a common problem after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. William Palmer sees often in our Depew / Lancaster office. Let's take a look at why headache is commonly experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help you recover.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car crash, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in swelling and soreness. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Depew / Lancaster 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 prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Dr. William Palmer can help reduce the swelling and strain in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
