Back And Neck Care Center Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

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, Position

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.


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.


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. (4) Manual therapy treatments like this help headache. Back And Neck Care Center uses Cox® Technic, a gliding, doctor-controlled neck treatment for such conditions as Severna Park headache and neck pain.
