Headaches are the second most common injury following a motor vehicle accident (neck pain is #1). These headaches are most often caused by the muscles of the neck being in a state of spasm. These tight muscles do not allow the joints of the neck to move properly, thus the body manifests this dysfunction as headaches.
These headaches will not just “go away on their own.” You need to get the muscles treated so they relax and allow the joints to move through their full range of motion. With treatment the healing time can still take months. Without treatment it may never heal properly and can lead to permanent disability.
