Objective: The purpose of this case report is to describe the management of a patient with trigeminal symptoms of cervical origin after a motor-vehicle crash (MVC).

Clinical Features: After a head-on MVC, a 65-year-old woman presented with complaints of dizziness, headaches, facial tingling, visual disturbance, tinnitus, loss of cervical motion, and pain in the cervical spine.
