Fernandina Beach headache. It is 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 associated with the
muscles of the neck brought on by stress or odd
head positioning. Both headache types are responsive
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is described as
the second most common health concern globally. A recent 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 decreasing headache frequency, enhancing
quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and decreasing
stress symptoms. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic welcomes Fernandina Beach tension-headache
sufferers as well as their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A recent
study noted how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to pinpoint the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. Generally, the C2-3 level was the most common
source. In patients whose chief 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 Fernandina Beach headache sufferer
must undergo this type of procedure to be helped, but the results were interesting for healthcare
providers to aid diagnose and treat headache patients in a better
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers noted
that spinal manipulation was applied often
to manage cervicogenic headache. Spinal manipulation was effective, provided
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 described in the medical literature.
In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers found that SNAGs
were effective for pain reduction and neck disability decrease
as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
