If you are dealing with headache after a car crash, don't despair. Dr. Vinick sees this type of problem very often in our Redondo Beach office. Why is headache such a common condition after an auto collision? How can chiropractic care help you get better?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes swelling and pain. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another common cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Redondo Beach office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite common after a crash, and it's important to get care for this type of problem to prevent the development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those brought about by car crashes. Dr. Vinick can help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
