Headaches from Auto Injuries
You may start experiencing headaches from auto accident injuries. This symptom is often a sign of a larger problem that may be hidden, only to surface months after the collision.
Some patients develop a condition called post-traumatic headache syndrome. People complain of recurring headaches, which can be worse for someone who is already dealing with migraines prior to an accident.
Stress can lead to tension headaches, but it’s best to get your back and neck examined following a car crash. One misconception is that you are not injured if your vehicle is not damaged.
This is far from true and if a headache begins days following the run-in, you should get checked out by a doctor just in case. Throbbing pain in the head is often caused from the impact of hitting your forehead on a window or the steering wheel.
A small accident is enough to cause misalignment. Visit Injury Chiropractic for a short assessment. A headache could be a sign of a traumatic brain injury or closed head injury that can quickly transpire.
