What should I do if I have headaches after a car accident?

Headache pain can be debilitating after a car crash. You may incur significant medical expenses, lose a lot of time from work, and suffer from severe physical pain and emotional trauma. If someone else caused your car accident injury, then you deserve to make a full recovery for all of your accident-related damages, but first, you must take action.

Get an Accurate Headache Diagnosis and Treatment Plan

Some of the car crash injuries that result in headaches include:

  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Skull fractures

When you seek medical treatment for headaches after a car crash, your doctor may use various diagnostic tools to determine the cause of your pain. Most of the time, the doctor will ask you questions about your symptoms and conduct a physical examination. After that, your doctor may order imaging tests such as CT scans and MRIs, nerve conduction tests, or other diagnostic tests to determine the exact cause of your headache pain.

Once your injury is diagnosed, an individualized treatment plan can be developed. This plan may include rest, medications, physical therapy, and other medical treatments.
