Headaches are a frequently reported medical condition following car accidents. These headaches may develop immediately following the accident or may develop shortly thereafter. Car accident headaches are considered “post traumatic headaches.” This type of a headache comes about following a physical trauma due to whiplash, where the head and neck head and neck rapidly whips back and forth during a collision or traffic accident. The most common types of car accident post trauma headaches are: musculoskeletal headaches/chronic face pain headaches, nerve dysfunction headaches, migraine headache, cervicothoracic somatic dysfunction headaches involving the neck, soft issue injury headaches/headaches caused by an injury to soft tissues and musclescaused by an injury to soft tissues and muscles. The human brain is very susceptible to damage from the forces generated by a typical auto accident. Dr.s commonly see brain injuries when the head strikes part of the vehicle during a crash, such as the windshield or dashboard. But the brain can also suffer injury without a direct blow to the head. The impact from a collision can cause the brain to undergo a sudden backward and forward motion, commonly referred to as “whiplash.” Whiplash is considered a closed-head injury, as it takes place within the skull.In serious car crashes, brain injuries rarely occur without accompanying serious physical injuries, so doctors and emergency rooms frequently miss the symptoms of a brain injury. In fact, more than 80 percent of brain injuries are not diagnosed in emergency rooms. Doctors rarely see only one set of symptoms, clearly defined impairments or a disability that affects only one part of a person’s life. Some long-term conditions of traumatic brain injury include seizures, headaches, visual problems and sleep disorders. Some of the most persistent and common functional problems include memory impairment, difficulties in concentration as well as deficits in language use and visual perception. Mood disorders, personality changes, emotional control, depression and anxiety are also prevalent with traumatic brain injury from a car accident.
