The Novelli Wellness Center Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

Buffalo, NY headache. It is a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and tension-type headaches are a couple of the more commonly talked about ones. The cervicogenic headache is linked to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints. The tension-type headache is linked to the muscles of the neck generated by stress or odd head positioning. Both headache forms are responsive to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at The Novelli Wellness Center.

SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress, Position

Tension type headache is noted 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, enhancing quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and diminishing stress symptoms.

SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint

Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A current study described 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 principal 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 Buffalo, NY headache patient must undergo this type of procedure to be taken care of, but the results were interesting for healthcare providers to aid diagnose and treat headache patients in a better way.

MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE

In a review of published clinical trials, researchers stated that spinal manipulation was employed 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 approaches. (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 found that SNAGs were effective for pain reduction and neck disability drop as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
