Abstract

Study design: A prospective clinical analysis of headaches in whiplash injury. Objectives: To provide a detailed clinical account of the nature, characteristics and natural history of headaches, and to examine their possible relation to the neck injury,Setting: One medicolegal practice in UK. Methods: This study consists of a prospective clinical analysis of headache symptoms in consecutive patients referred to the author for medicolegal assessment of whiplash injury, with no special reference to headaches. Results: All 80 patients noted neck pain. Headaches were related as a consequence of the accident by 48 patients (60% of the total). The circumstances of injury did not differ from whiplash victims who did not have prominentheadache. The headache onset was maximum in the first 24 h after injury. The failure to recall well documented pre-accident headaches in almost one fifth of patients is significant. The common types of headaches were non-specific, generalised, dull, aching pain (25 patients), a mixtures of aching and tightness, and tension type headache. Only three (6%) had migraine without aura. Conclusion: Post-whiplash headache is a genuine common but short lived affair, constant headaches disappearing within 3 weeks in 85% subjects. In theminority complaining of headache after that period there was no evidence of persisting physical injury, nor of inability to work or other disability caused by headaches.
