Wilson Family Chiropractic Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

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, Position

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.


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.


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. (4) Manual therapy treatments like this benefit headache. Wilson Family Chiropractic provides Cox® Technic, a gliding, doctor-controlled neck treatment for such conditions as Millville headache and neck pain.
