Pflugerville Wellness Center Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

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, Position

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.

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 way.


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.
