If you suffer from headache after a car crash, don't worry. Dr. Messerschmidt sees this type of problem very often in our Juneau, AK office. The key to recovering from headache caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by an auto collision, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in inflammation and pain. 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 crash that we see in our Juneau, AK office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is quite common after a crash, and it's important to get treatment for this type of problem to prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Dr. Messerschmidt can help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
