What is Whiplash Headache?:

What is Whiplash Headache? http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 Nearly 80 percent of people who experience whiplash develop a chronic headache, also known as cervicogenic or neck-related headache. Neck movements often aggravate the problem – particularly if the neck is moved towards extension: looking up to the ceiling is often very painful.

Causes:

Causes http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 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. Jacksonville Pain Physician

Symptoms:

Symptoms http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 The symptoms of whiplash headache are often indistinguishable from any other headache. Pain can occur in any part of the head, neck and jaw. Symptoms may occur immediately after an injury or several days later. Jacksonville Pain Doctors

Treatment:

Treatment http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 Whiplash headache can initially be treated with physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications. If pain persists, steroid/ anesthetic injections in the facet joints of the spine may provide temporary relief, or radiofrequency pain blocks may provide long-term relief.
