Headache and Auto Injury
If you are suffering from headache after an auto collision, don't despair. Dr. Dorn sees this type of problem frequently in our Killeen, TX office. Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Dr. Dorn can help you.
There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by a car crash, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be torn, which results in inflammation and soreness. 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 Killeen, TX 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 care is an effective way to treat headaches, including those caused by auto injuries. Your chiropractor will help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
