Pensacola headache. It’s a condition many
people experience. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are a couple of the more commonly
discussed types. The cervicogenic headache is associated
with issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is linked to neck muscles caused by stress or odd
head positioning. Both headache forms tend to respond
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is described as
the second most common health concern globally. A recent review of published papers for its treatment
found that manual joint mobilization techniques, supervised
physical therapy, acupuncture, psychological care, and patient education were
as beneficial for decreasing headache frequency, enhancing
quality of life, lessening pain intensity, and diminishing
stress symptoms. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center welcomes Pensacola tension-headache
sufferers as well as their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Pensacola chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A current
study detailed how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to find the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. In general, the C2-3 level was the most frequent
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%. 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 Pensacola headache patient
must experience this type of procedure to be helped, but the results were interesting for healthcare
providers to aid 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 often
to manage cervicogenic headache. Spinal manipulation was effective, supplied
superior, small, short term benefits for decreasing pain,
headache frequency, and related disability compared with other manual treatment.
(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
as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
