We manage many auto injury cases in in our Parkland, FL office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is headache. Chiropractic care is a great way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Dr. Neil Scharf can help you.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car crash, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes swelling and discomfort. 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 Parkland, FL 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 therapy for this type of problem to avoid the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Your chiropractor will help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
