The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

Colorado Springs headache. It’s a condition many people experience. Cervicogenic and tension-type headaches are two of the more commonly discussed types. The cervicogenic headache is linked to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints. The tension-type headache is linked to neck muscles caused by stress or peculiar head positioning. Both headache forms are responsive to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR.

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

Tension type headache is noted as the second most common health concern around the world. A recent 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 decreasing headache frequency, improving quality of life, reducing pain intensity, and lowering stress symptoms.

Colorado Springs chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A recent study detailed how researchers used diagnostic block testing to find the cervical spine joint source of the headache. In general, the C2-3 level was the most frequent source. In patients whose chief complaint was headache over 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 Colorado Springs headache patient must experience this type of testing to be helped, but the results were interesting for healthcare providers to aid make a diagnosis and set up a treatment plan for headache patients in a better way.


In a review of published clinical trials, researchers noted that spinal manipulation was applied often 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 effective for pain reduction and neck disability drop and range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
