Manahawkin Chiropractic Center Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

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, Position

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.

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.


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. (4) Manual therapy approaches like this benefit headache.
