Yes, unfortunately whiplash can cause pain and headaches. A sudden trauma such as whiplash can cause injury to the soft tissues of the neck, ligaments and muscles. Any type of tightness in the muscles can cause neck pain or headaches, espeically if not treated right after the injury. A misalignment in the cervical spine can also result because of the whiplash injury, and this can cause headaches as well.
