Tension type HA: Cervical alignment and Muscle balance are frequently lost after motor vehicle accidents, causing pressure on cervical nerve outflow. Some of them innervate the greater occipital nerves which Can cause many headaches. A PMR doc can evaluate this, prescribe physical therapy or give injections to relax muscles or desensitize nerves, and meds to help. Cervical pillows can help til them]n. Good luck
