If you are suffering from headache after a car crash, you're not alone. Dr. Neil Scharf sees this type of condition very often in our Parkland, FL office. Why is headache such a common problem after a car accident? How can your chiropractor help you get better?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car accident, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation 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 headache after a crash 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 development of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
