Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Headache following Road Traffic Accident (RTA) needs to be evaluated for intracranial injuries. Neck pain radiating to shoulders also suggest cervical spine injuries.

Siting in a car during RTA exposes you to whiplash injuries and such injuries are prone to both intracranial and cervical spine injuries. You need to consult your doctor for a detailed physical examination and evaluation – X-ray’s and CT scan / MRI scan to rule out the aforementioned possibilities.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you good health and speedy recovery.
