Headache and Car Crashes

If you are dealing with headache after an auto injury, don't despair. Dr. Myers sees this type of condition very often in our Asheville office. Chiropractic is a great way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Dr. Myers can help you.

There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by a car crash, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a crash, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes inflammation and soreness. 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 Asheville 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 avoid the creation of scar tissue.

Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Dr. Myers can help reduce the inflammation and tension in your neck, which will help ease the headache pain.
