Headache and Car Accidents
If you are dealing with headache after a car crash, don't despair. Dr. Alan Wild sees this type of condition very often in our Huntington office. Chiropractic care is a great way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Dr. Alan Wild can help you.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a collision, 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 forehead.
Another frequent cause of pain after a crash that we see in our Huntington 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 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. Alan Wild can help reduce the swelling and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
Dr. Alan Wild is here in Huntington to help you recover from headache. We've been helping patients since 1986 and we can probably help you, too.
