Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

July 06, 2022

Fort Wayne headache. It’s a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and tension-type headaches are a couple of the more often discussed ones. 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 Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc.

SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress, Position

Tension type headache is described as the second most common health concern globally. A new review of published studies 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 decreasing stress symptoms.

Fort Wayne chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A current 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 frequent source. In patients whose principal complaint was headache more than neck pain, the C2-3 was the source for 62%, C1-2 for 7%, and C3-4 for 6%. For patients whose neck pain was greater 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 undergo this type of procedure to be helped, but the results were enlightening for healthcare providers to aid diagnose and set up a treatment plan for headache patients in a better way.


In a review of published clinical trials, researchers stated that spinal manipulation was used frequently 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 described in the medical literature. In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers explained how SNAGs were effective for pain reduction and neck disability drop as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache. (4) Manual therapy approaches like this benefit headache.
