After an auto accident, you may begin to experience headaches. It’s important to see a doctor about them right away. Even if they are mild, don’t brush them off – headaches may be your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Headaches can be a warning sign for:
- Injury to the neck
- Blood clot in the brain
Headaches can also be debilitating, making it difficult to get to work, care for your children, and carry on your daily routines. You don’t have to live that way.
We specialize in diagnosing, treating, and rehabilitating those who have suffered brain injury in a car accident. With same day appointments, patient focused atmosphere, and a double board-certified neurologist on our team, Florida Physical Medicine can put you on the road to recovery.
While headache pain may only be dull, that pain can grow. If you have been in an auto accident and are now experiencing headaches, see one of our doctors right away.
