Headache and Car Crashes

Headache is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Maurice J Cyr sees often in our Rutland office. Let's look at the root cause of headache after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help.

There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's caused by an auto injury, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a wreck, 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 headache after a crash that we see in our Rutland 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 excellent way to treat headaches, including those caused by car crashes. Dr. Maurice J Cyr can help reduce the irritation and tension in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.

You don't have to suffer from headache. Dr. Maurice J Cyr is conveniently located in Rutland to help you heal, whether you've been in a car crash or not.
