Baton Rouge headache. It’s a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are two of the more commonly
discussed ones. The cervicogenic headache is linked to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is associated with neck muscles brought on by stress or odd
head positioning. Both headache forms are responsive
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Spine & Sports Rehab 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 papers 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 decreasing
stress symptoms. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center welcomes Baton Rouge tension-headache
sufferers as well as their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Baton Rouge chiropractic patients want to understand
the source of their headache. A current
study detailed how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to find 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%. In 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 Baton Rouge headache patient
must undergo this type of procedure to be taken
care of, but the results were interesting for healthcare
providers to aid make a diagnosis and treat headache patients more beneficially.
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers stated
that spinal manipulation was applied frequently
to manage cervicogenic headache. Spinal manipulation was effective, provided
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 explained in the medical literature.
In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers explained how SNAGs
were good for pain reduction and neck disability drop
and range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
