Everything About Secondary Headaches

Redwood City upper cervical chiropractic helps patients get headache relief. A medical condition or an injury usually causes the unexpected arrival of headaches. When you get headaches as a result of these factors, they are called secondary headaches.

For many people, medications for headaches give no relief. Meanwhile,  they even cause more severe problems to appear on others. Some people have more issues because some medications contain caffeine, and too much of it can bring on headaches. 

What Causes Secondary Headaches?

A secondary headache is a warning sign of a condition that may hurt the pain-sensitive nerves of the head. Here is a list of the usual and not so typical reasons behind secondary headaches

  • Damage to the nerve connecting the face and brain (Trigeminal Neuralgia)
  • Dental problems
  • Acute sinusitis
  • Concussion
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Dehydration
  • Panic attacks
  • Certain medications
  • Structural damage at the base of the skull (Chiari Malformation)
  • Pain medication abuse
  • Whiplash

Relief for Secondary Headaches Through Upper Cervical Chiropractic

It’s crucial to determine the real source of the problem to help people who suffer from secondary headaches find relief. Thanks to Redwood City upper cervical chiropractic, numerous patients have already experienced long-lasting headache relief.

Any misalignment on the top vertebra of the neck can affect the proper communication between the brainstem, the brain, and the body. In addition, even a misalignment as tiny as ¼ millimeter can obstruct the functions of the nervous system. Even worse, several complications may arise if this is the case. If these conditions apply to your particular situation, then it means the injury or disease responsible for your secondary headaches might come as a result of this structural imbalance in your upper cervical area.
