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
Disc Centers Of America.

quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and diminishing
stress symptoms. (1) Disc Centers Of America welcomes Buffalo, NY tension-headache
