Most Chiropractic Clinic Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

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, Position

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.


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.


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. (4) Manual therapy approaches like this benefit headache. Most Chiropractic Clinic uses Cox® Technic, a gliding, doctor-controlled neck treatment for such conditions as Murfreesboro headache and neck pain.
