Fort Wayne headache. It’s a condition many
people experience. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are a couple of the more commonly
discussed ones. The cervicogenic headache is associated
with issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is related to the
muscles of the neck brought on by stress or peculiar
head positioning. Both headache forms tend to respond
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is noted as
the second most common health concern globally. A recent review of published studies for its care
explained that manual joint mobilization techniques, supervised
physical therapy, acupuncture, psychological care, and patient education were
as beneficial for reducing headache frequency, improving
quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and diminishing
stress symptoms. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc welcomes Fort Wayne tension-headache
sufferers as well as their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Fort Wayne chiropractic patients want to understand
the source of their headache. A recent
study described how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to pinpoint the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. Overall, 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 Fort Wayne headache patient
must experience this type of procedure to be helped, but the results were enlightening for healthcare
providers to help diagnose and set up a
treatment plan for headache patients more beneficially.
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers stated
that spinal manipulation was used 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 called 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 drop
as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
