Amelia Chiropractic Clinic Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

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, Position

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.

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 way.


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. (4) Manual therapy treatments like this benefit headache. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic uses Cox® Technic, a gliding, doctor-controlled neck treatment for such conditions as Fernandina Beach headache and neck pain.
