If you are dealing with headache after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Linton sees this type of problem very often in our Mt Sterling office. Let's look at the root cause of headache after an accident and see how your chiropractor can help.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto collision, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes inflammation and discomfort. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another frequent cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Mt Sterling office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite 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 effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Dr. Linton can help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
You don't have to suffer from headache. Dr. Linton is conveniently located in Mt Sterling to help you heal, whether you've been in an auto collision or not. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment strategy. Ready to make an appointment?
