If you have headache after a car crash, don't worry. Dr. Groneck sees this type of condition frequently in our Humble office. Why is headache such a common symptom after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you heal?
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car crash, though, usually starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a collision, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes inflammation and soreness. These kinds 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 crash that we see in our Humble office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that start 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 prevent the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Dr. Groneck can help reduce the swelling and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
You don't have to suffer from headache. Dr. Groneck is conveniently located in Humble to help you get better, whether you've been in a car crash or not.
