West Palm Beach headache. It’s a condition many
people experience. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are two of the more often
talked about ones. The cervicogenic headache is linked to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is related to the
muscles of the neck generated by stress or odd
head positioning. Both headache types tend to respond
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is described as
the second most common health concern globally. A new review of published studies for its treatment
found that manual joint mobilization techniques, supervised
physical therapy, acupuncture, psychological care, and patient education were
as beneficial for reducing headache frequency, improving
quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and diminishing
stress symptoms. (1) Chiropractic Care welcomes West Palm Beach tension-headache
sufferers as well as their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
West Palm Beach chiropractic patients want to understand
the source of their headache. A current
study noted how researchers used diagnostic
block testing to pinpoint the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. Overall, the C2-3 level was the most common
source. In patients whose dominant complaint was headache
more than 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 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 West Palm Beach headache patient
must experience this type of procedure to be helped, but the results were interesting for healthcare
providers to help diagnose and set up a
treatment plan for headache patients more beneficially.
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers stated
that spinal manipulation was used frequently
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 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
as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
