Pflugerville headache. It’s a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are a couple of the more often
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 brought on by stress or peculiar
head positioning. Both headache forms are responsive
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Pflugerville Wellness Center.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is reported as
the second most common health concern around the world. A new review of published studies for its care
found 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 diminishing
stress symptoms. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center welcomes Pflugerville tension-headache
sufferers as well as their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Pflugerville chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A current
study noted how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to pinpoint the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. In general, 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%. 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 Pflugerville headache patient
must undergo this type of procedure to be helped, but the results were enlightening for healthcare
providers to aid 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 applied frequently
to manage cervicogenic headache. Spinal manipulation was effective, provided
superior, small, short term benefits for decreasing 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 described in the medical literature.
In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers explained how SNAGs
were effective for pain reduction and neck disability decrease
and range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
