Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

Groton headache. It is a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and tension-type headaches are a couple 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 associated with the muscles of the neck generated by stress or odd head positioning. Both headache types tend to respond to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office.

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

Tension type headache is reported as the second most common health concern globally. A new review of published papers for its care found that manual joint mobilization techniques, supervised physical therapy, acupuncture, psychological care, and patient education were as beneficial for reducing headache frequency, improving quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and lowering stress symptoms.

Groton chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A current study noted how researchers utilized diagnostic block testing to pinpoint the cervical spine joint source of the headache. In general, 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%. In 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 Groton headache patient must undergo this type of testing to be helped, but the results were enlightening for healthcare providers to help diagnose and treat headache patients more beneficially.


In a review of published clinical trials, researchers noted 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 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 found that SNAGs were good for pain reduction and neck disability drop as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache. (4) Manual therapy approaches like this help headache.
