Headache is a common problem after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Elganainy sees frequently in our Burton, MI office. Let's see why headache is frequently experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic care can help you recover.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car accident, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a collision, 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 pain after a crash that we see in our Burton, MI 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 creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by car crashes. Dr. Elganainy can help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
