There are many different types of headache. Headache that's caused by a car crash, though, typically starts as tension or strain in the muscle tissue of the neck. In a wreck, the neck muscles can be torn, which causes inflammation and discomfort. These types of headache can be felt in different places, including the back of the head or even the temple.
Another frequent cause of pain after a collision that we see in our Naperville, IL office is cervicogenic headache, or headaches that originate in injured ligaments of the neck.
