Headache and Auto Injury

If you have headache after an auto injury, you're not alone. Drs. Ken Haycock & Tim Vierheller sees this type of condition frequently in our Massillon, OH office. Let's take a look at why headache is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help you recover.

There are many different types of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car accident, though, usually begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be damaged, which results in swelling and pain. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.

Another frequent cause of headache after a collision that we see in our Massillon, OH 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 care for this type of problem to prevent the development of scar tissue.

Chiropractic is an effective way to treat headaches, including those brought about by auto injuries. Drs. Ken Haycock & Tim Vierheller can help reduce the irritation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.
