Headache and Auto Injury

Headache is a common problem after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Selzer sees often in our Bay Shore office. Chiropractic is a great way to treat headache. Let's look at how headache is caused by a crash and how Dr. Selzer can help you.

There are many different kinds of headache. Headache that's triggered by a car crash, though, typically begins as tension or strain in the muscles of the cervical spine. In a collision, the neck muscles can be damaged, which causes swelling and pain. These kinds of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the forehead.

Another frequent cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Bay Shore 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 treatment for this type of problem to avoid the development of scar tissue.

Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat headaches, including those triggered by auto injuries. Your chiropractic doctor will help reduce the inflammation and strain in your neck, which will help alleviate the headache pain.

You don't have to suffer from headache. Dr. Selzer is conveniently located in Bay Shore to help you heal, whether you've been in a car crash or not. Dr. Selzer will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning. Give our office a call today at (631) 665-3714 to make an appointment.
