If you are suffering from headache after an auto injury, don't despair. Dr. Lach sees this type of problem very often in our Corvallis office. Let's look at the root cause of headache after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help.
There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car crash, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, 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 collision that we see in our Corvallis office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck. Ligament injury is very common after a crash, and it's important to get care for this type of problem to protect against the creation of scar tissue.
Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Dr. Lach can help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help relieve the headache pain.
You don't have to suffer from headache. Dr. Lach is conveniently located in Corvallis to help you get better, whether you've been in an auto collision or not.
