Sandy Springs headache. It is a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are two of the more often
talked about types. The cervicogenic headache is linked to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is associated with neck muscles caused by stress or odd
head positioning. Both headache types are responsive
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Cross Chiropractic Center.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is described as
the second most common health concern around the
globe. 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 decreasing headache frequency, improving
quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and decreasing
stress symptoms. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center welcomes Sandy Springs tension-headache
sufferers as well as their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Sandy Springs chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A recent
study noted how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to pinpoint the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. Generally, 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 Sandy Springs headache patient
must undergo this type of procedure to be helped, but the results were interesting for healthcare
providers to help make a diagnosis and treat headache patients in a better
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers noted
that spinal manipulation was employed often
to manage cervicogenic headache. Spinal manipulation was effective, supplied
superior, small, short term benefits for reducing pain,
headache frequency, and related disability compared with other manual approaches.
(3) One relieving treatment called SNAGs (sustained natural
apophyseal glides) has been explained in the medical literature.
In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers explained how SNAGs
were effective for pain reduction and neck disability drop
as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
