What You Need to Know About Headaches after Auto Injuries

Many patients come to our St. Louis office wondering why they're experiencing headaches after a car accident injury, when they didn't strike their head during the crash.

Headaches after a car accident have a number of potential causes. If you have experienced a whiplash injury or cervical disc herniation, you may start to suffer from cervicogenic headaches. These headaches are form of referred pain that radiate from irritated nerves in the neck.

Tensions headaches are another possible type of headache that frequently develop as a result of muscle tension or spasms after a tissue injury. Dealing with the stressful after events of a car crash, like litigation and filing insurance claims, can also cause significant stress leading to tension headaches or migraine.

Headaches may be a sign of a more serious condition, like vascular injury or brain injury, so it's important to be evaluated by your doctor or St. Louis chiropractor as soon as possible. Contact Accident & Pain Relief of St. Louis for non-invasive treatment of headache.
