Headache and Car Accidents

Headache is a common condition after a car accident, and it's something that Dr. Banc sees frequently in our Stamford, CT office. The key to recovering from headache caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.

There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the cervical spine. 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 forehead.

Another common cause of pain after a crash that we see in our Stamford, CT 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 treatment for this type of problem to protect against the development of scar tissue.

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