Headache Treatment

Headache is reported in 90% of auto injury patients, and there are many different possible causes.

Cervicogenic headaches are probably the most common after a car crash. Cervicogenic means "originating in the neck" and these headaches are caused by irritation of the nerves that travel through the head and neck. These nerves are irritated either directly from the crash or as a result of ligament or disc injury in the spine.

Tension headaches are also common, as the muscles can be injured in a collision, causing them to spasm.

Vascular symptoms, or injury to the blood vessels in your neck, are less common, but can be very serious. Symptoms of vascular injury are dizziness, faintness, blurry vision, neck pain, and headache.
