Severna Park headache. It’s a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are two of the more often
discussed ones. The cervicogenic headache is associated
with issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is associated with the
muscles of the neck brought on by stress or odd
head positioning. Both headache types are responsive
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Back And Neck Care Center.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is noted as
the second most common health concern globally. 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 decreasing headache frequency, improving
quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and diminishing
stress symptoms. (1) Back And Neck Care Center welcomes Severna Park tension-headache
sufferers and their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Severna Park chiropractic patients want to understand
the source of their headache. A current
study described how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to find the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. Generally, the C2-3 level was the most frequent
source. In patients whose principal complaint was headache
over 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 Severna Park headache sufferer
must undergo this type of procedure to be taken
care of, but the results were interesting for healthcare
providers to help make a diagnosis and treat headache patients more beneficially.
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 called 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
and range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
