If you are suffering from headache after a car crash, don't worry. Dr. Robert Stein & Dr. Brian Lerman sees this type of problem very often in our Pikesville & Baltimore, MD office. What causes headache after a car crash? How can a chiropractor help?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto injury, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, 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 frequent cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Pikesville & Baltimore, 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 care 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 car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the swelling and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
