Manahawkin headache. It is 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 neck muscles caused by stress or peculiar
head positioning. Both headache types are responsive
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center.
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
explained 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center welcomes Manahawkin tension-headache
sufferers and their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Manahawkin chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A recent
study detailed how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to find the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. Overall, the C2-3 level was the most frequent
source. In patients whose chief 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 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 Manahawkin headache patient
must experience this type of procedure to be taken
care of, but the results were enlightening for healthcare
providers to help make a diagnosis and set up a
treatment plan for headache patients more beneficially.
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers noted
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
and range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
