During a car accident, your head can be violently and quickly whipped backward and forward. This rapid movement can cause damage to numerous parts in your neck including the blood vessels that supply your brain. The vertebral arteries are especially vulnerable because the travel through the cervical vertebrae. When your neck is whipped, the arteries can get twisted or stretched beyond capacity causing damage on the lining of your blood vessels. This can lead to swelling, tearing, and in extreme cases block blood flow.
Symptoms of vertebral artery injury can be felt as a pain in the back of the head that gets worse over time. You can experience pain on either side of the head or in the middle and the pain can range from mild to a throbbing sensation.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is extremely important to seek help from your healthcare provider immediately. If you have been in an auto accident, chiropractic care can help. Chiropractic care can work with you to help pinpoint the root cause of your pain to help create a treatment plan that best suits you.
