Suffered whip lash in my neck I had stiffness and pain for three days I've had headaches everyday since and a crackling sound in back of neck and head?

If after this treatment you continue to have a headache I would seek medical attention. ...Read more

These headaches originate in the back of the head and migrate forward. Often the headaches worsen through the day. The popping noise are the facet joints of the cervical spine rubbing together and transmit to the ear. ...Read more
