If you have gone through a traumatic event lately, like a car accident, a serious fall, a sports-related injury, or a similar trauma that has impacted your head or neck, you may find yourself suffering from headaches shortly thereafter. However, there is help available. Don’t ever feel like you have to suffer through and learn to put up with headaches. They can actually be doing more damage than you realize. It is important to get them cared for as soon as possible by visiting us here at Health Edge Family Spinal Care in Glendale, California. To see how we can help you, let’s take a closer look at why neck injuries cause headaches.
Neck and Head Trauma Create Headaches
A concussion, in particular, can cause problems that last a long time. This is due to the fact that the head is situated on the top of the neck where the C1 vertebra is located. If the head suffers a minor blow, the C1 can easily become misaligned. The C1 and C2 vertebrae were designed to protect the brainstem from damage. They are located in the same area where the brainstem and the spinal cord meet. A misalignment in these bones can put undue pressure on the brainstem, causing it to send improper signals to the brain. Another negative impact of this kind of alignment is the hindering of blood flow to and from the brain. These are all reasons for headaches to occur.
Finding Natural Relief
In order to help our headache patients, we focus on correcting the misalignment located in the upper cervical spine. We do this by employing a method that is both gentle and precise. We do not need to crack or pop the spine to get the desired results. This leads to positive, long-lasting results. Our patients and those in case studies report surprising and encouraging results.
