Natural and Lasting Headache Relief

There are two types of headaches that an individual can experience, primary and secondary headaches. A primary headache is one that is caused by nerve damage or a reduced flow of blood or oxygen to the brain. A secondary headache is one that can be caused by other experiences or environmental factors.

If you drink coffee, you may have experienced a secondary headache if you have too little caffeine, or even too much. Injury or sickness can also trigger this type of a headache. Concussions and neck injuries are common examples of this. With a concussion, the brain is bruised by hitting the inside of the skull. Whiplash can cause neck muscles to over-extend and cause harm to the region. When these types of injuries occur, secondary headaches are experienced by many.

A sudden onset of head pain could be due to the aforementioned incidents. Resolving in a way that will result in long-term relief is possible. It may be that a misalignment occurred in the upper cervical region of the spine when the trauma occurred to the head or neck. Even a tiny misplacement of these vertebrae has the potential to cause pain and other complications. This is due to an interruption of communication between the brain and the body. Blood and oxygen flow are often affected as well.

Seeking Headache Relief Through Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

Usually realigning the out of place vertebra will remove the cause of the issues. Relieving pressure from this vital region in the neck will allow for open communication and restore the flow of blood and oxygen. With the root cause of the headaches properly resolved, healing can begin naturally. If you are experiencing these types of head pain, feel free to give us a call. An assessment will help determine if we can ease the pain you are experiencing.
