Murfreesboro headache. It’s a condition many
people experience. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are two of the more commonly
talked about types. The cervicogenic headache is related to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is linked to the
muscles of the neck caused by stress or odd
head positioning. Both headache types are responsive
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Most Chiropractic Clinic.
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 papers for its care
found that manual joint mobilization techniques, supervised
physical therapy, acupuncture, psychological care, and patient education were
as beneficial for decreasing headache frequency, improving
quality of life, lessening pain intensity, and lowering
stress symptoms. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic welcomes Murfreesboro tension-headache
sufferers and their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Murfreesboro chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A recent
study described 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 common
source. In patients whose chief complaint was headache
over 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 Murfreesboro headache patient
must experience this type of testing to be helped, but the results were enlightening for healthcare
providers to aid diagnose and set up a
treatment plan for headache patients more beneficially.
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers noted
that spinal manipulation was employed 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 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 effective for pain reduction and neck disability decrease
as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
