Millville headache. It is a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are a couple of the more often
discussed types. The cervicogenic headache is linked to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is related to the
muscles of the neck generated by stress or peculiar
head positioning. Both headache forms tend to respond
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Wilson Family Chiropractic.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is described as
the second most common health concern around the world. A recent review of published papers 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, enhancing
quality of life, lessening pain intensity, and lowering
stress symptoms. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic welcomes Millville tension-headache
sufferers as well as their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Millville chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A recent
study detailed how researchers used 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 dominant complaint was headache
over 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 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 Millville headache sufferer
must experience this type of procedure to be taken
care of, but the results were enlightening for healthcare
providers to help make a diagnosis and treat headache patients more beneficially.
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers noted
that spinal manipulation was used 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 described in the medical literature.
In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers found that SNAGs
were good for pain reduction and neck disability drop
and range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
