Tonawanda headache. It’s a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are a couple of the more commonly
talked about types. The cervicogenic headache is linked to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is related to neck muscles generated by stress or peculiar
head positioning. Both headache types are responsive
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is described as
the second most common health concern around the world. A new review of published papers for its treatment
found that manual joint mobilization techniques, supervised
physical therapy, acupuncture, psychological care, and patient education were
as beneficial for reducing headache frequency, enhancing
quality of life, lessening pain intensity, and diminishing
stress symptoms. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation welcomes Tonawanda tension-headache
sufferers and their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Tonawanda chiropractic patients want to understand
the source of their headache. A current
study detailed how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to find the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. Generally, the C2-3 level was the most frequent
source. In patients whose dominant complaint was headache
more than neck pain, the C2-3 was the source for 62%, C1-2 for 7%,
and C3-4 for 6%. In patients whose neck pain was worse
than the headache, C2-3 was the source for 42%, lower cervical joints for 18%,
and C3-4 for 7%. (2) Not that every Tonawanda headache patient
must experience this type of testing to be taken
care of, but the results were enlightening for healthcare
providers to aid diagnose and set up a
treatment plan for headache patients in a better
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers stated
that spinal manipulation was employed often
to manage cervicogenic headache. Spinal manipulation was effective, supplied
superior, small, short term benefits for reducing pain,
headache frequency, and related disability compared with other manual treatment.
(3) One relieving treatment referred to as SNAGs (sustained natural
apophyseal glides) has been explained in the medical literature.
In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers explained how SNAGs
were good for pain reduction and neck disability decrease
and range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
