Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

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, Position

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.

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%.
