Woman with headacheDid you know that some headache symptoms don’t show up until a week after a traumatic head injury?

When this happens, it’s referred to as post-traumatic headache. 

Why does it take so long for the headache to rear its ugly head? Is there a safe, natural headache treatment that can help reduce the severity of the pain?

What Causes Post-Traumatic Headaches and What Are the Symptoms?

Over time, the blood vessels in the head can constrict due to inflammation that progressively increases after an injury. A migraine- or tension-like headache can result. Or, the cause could be muscle tension that’s experienced after such an injury. 

Symptoms of a traumatic headache include

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Pulsing pain
  • Insomnia
  • Sensitivity to light/sound
  • Memory/concentration issues
  • Depression/anxiety. 

Why Chiropractic Is an Ideal Natural Headache Treatment 

If you’re not a fan of pain medications, what pain management options do you have? Is there a natural headache treatment that can reduce your symptoms?

Thankfully, there is – chiropractic care. 

Your Fresno chiropractor, Dr. Jaime Reyna, can recommend spinal adjustments to keep the spine in proper alignment, which reduces pain and inflammation. 

Another recommendation might be physiotherapy, a form of treatment that includes massage, rehabilitative exercises, and postural alignment/correction. Such treatment will help you manage your pain and can, in some cases, even prevent it.
