Fort Wayne headache. It is a condition many
people experience. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are two of the more commonly
discussed types. The cervicogenic headache is linked to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is related to neck muscles brought on by stress or peculiar
head positioning. Both headache types tend to respond
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is described as
the second most common health concern around the world. A new 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 decreasing
stress symptoms. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 noted how researchers used diagnostic
block testing to find the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. In general, the C2-3 level was the most frequent
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%. 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 experience this type of testing to be helped, but the results were interesting for healthcare
providers to help diagnose and treat headache patients in a better
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
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 approaches.
(3) One relieving treatment referred to as 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
and range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
