Whiplash: The Origin of Most Cases of Chronic Headaches


Whiplash often results in the onset of chronic headaches, making people ask the help of a California upper cervical chiropractor. The pain can hit shortly after the trauma or a few months or years later. How can you know if a head injury will lead to headaches? Know the health of your neck.

The Role of the Neck in Whiplash

Sad to say, most cases of whiplash are either uncared for or undetected. Why is this the case? Many patients do not know that an accident such as a car crash or sports mishap can damage the neck. Most people downplay their injury and think there is no reason to see a California upper cervical chiropractor. 

The truth is that suffering from whiplash, even from a minor accident, can misalign the C1 and C2 vertebrae of your upper neck. These bones are like no other bones in the spine, as they are very mobile. They are the vertebrae that allow the head to move in different ranges of motion. However, they are vulnerable to misalignment.

Other Causes of Whiplash Injuries

Getting in a car accident is not the only method to acquire whiplash. These events can also cause whiplash causes:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Bike accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Domestic abuse

Care for Headaches Due to Whiplash

Once whiplash occurs, it is essential to have a California upper cervical chiropractor examine your spine. This is very important, regardless if the accident you had was only minor or whether headaches have developed.Advanced Spinal Care targets the C1 and C2 vertebrae to help patients heal the damage caused by any injury. We employ the NUCCA method of upper cervical chiropractic for patients. It is safe and gentle, and adjustments are long-lasting. As a result, the body has more time to heal from impairment.
