Car Accidents Cause Headaches

There are many reasons why a person would have headaches. It could be because of the consumption of certain foods or because the person decided to skip meals and not eat. Stress can cause headaches as well as not getting enough sleep. However, whiplash is more than likely the reason for those who have been injured in a car accident.


The symptoms of whiplash can be felt throughout the whole body. Some the main painful locations in the body include the neck, arm, low back, muscles and shoulder. Those who have a whiplash injury may also suffer from having a stiff neck or tenderness in the neck. Tenderness can also be felt in others areas of the body. Whiplash is actually a neck injury that occurs during the car accident, but is often felt after the accident takes place. It happens when the neck is forcefully moved backward and then forward during the car accident. An injury such as whiplash can cause difficulty in focusing because of the headaches. Headaches can also limit one’s ability to accomplish duties at work and make it difficult to drive a vehicle. A diagnosis of whiplash can help prevent further medical conditions like having a migraine disorder which are usually more severe than tension headaches.

Treatment Options

The symptoms of whiplash are sometimes treated as a minor problem. This occurs when a person who has been injured in a car accident does not know that they have a whiplash. They may prefer over the counter medications that are helpful, but only temporarily. Also, constantly taking over the counter medications is an unnatural way of alleviating pain. When the recommended dosage is exceeds it can cause harm to the body. A chiropractor can effectively help to treat whiplash injuries.
