Chronic headache pain can be debilitating and cause significant disruption in a person’s daily life. Some people experience dull, aching headaches, and others experience more severe migraines with extreme pain and throbbing. In addition, tension can cause headaches, causing pain along the scalp and neck, while an auto accident injury, such as whiplash, may also cause headache pain. 


A chiropractor can provide an alternative to pain medications for headache treatment, using non-invasive, non-addictive treatment options. The chiropractic team at Spinal Health & Rehab Integrative Medicine can help patients in Punta Gorda with their headache pain. 

Can an Auto Accident Injury Cause Headaches? 

Most people in an auto accident may suffer neck, back, and spine injuries, which may cause headache pain. Sometimes the headache symptoms appear shortly after the accident, but in most cases, the pain does not start for several days after the accident. 

Whiplash is the most common auto accident injury, which can cause significant headache pain radiating down the side of the neck and face. 

Can Headaches Be a Symptom of Whiplash? 

Whiplash is a common auto accident injury caused by the forceful front and back whipping motion the head and neck experience at the point of impact. Whiplash injuries can cause pain in the back of the neck and stiffness which can worsen with movement. It is also common for people with a whiplash injury to experience arm pain, headaches, and migraines. 

Other Causes of Headache Pain

In addition to auto accidents and injuries, several other factors can cause headache pain. Some additional causes of headache pain may include anxiety, stress, poor posture, poor diet, dehydration, poor sleeping habits, and text neck. 

Can Chiropractic Care Treat Headaches? 

Seeing a chiropractor can provide you with non-invasive, drug-free pain management for headaches. Most headache treatment plans include spinal manipulation of the neck and upper back area. Additional chiropractic care treatment for chronic headache pain may consist of acupuncture, massage, physical therapy, and cold laser treatments.
