A high percentage of the people who experience whiplash develop chronic headaches, also known as cervicogenic headache or neck-related headache.
The sudden and extreme back and forth motion of whiplash can injure the cervical facet joints, causing inflammation and irritation of the nerves in the brain stem and spinal cord. This is very serious and needs to be addressed as soon as possible to avoid the possibility of chronic pain syndrome.
Our conservative treatment and multi-specialty approach in treating whiplash headaches is a great course of care for whiplash associated pain. If more advanced procedures are required due to the level of injury, our physicians can decided what is best and proceed with quality patient care.
