Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

La Grande headache. It is a condition many people experience. Cervicogenic and tension-type headaches are two of the more often talked about types. The cervicogenic headache is related to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints. The tension-type headache is related 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 Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC.

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 papers for its care explained 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, lessening pain intensity, and lowering stress symptoms.

La Grande chiropractic patients want to understand the source of their headache. A current study noted how researchers used 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 over 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 La Grande headache sufferer must experience this type of procedure to be taken care of, but the results were interesting for healthcare providers to help diagnose and treat headache patients in a better way.


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 described in the medical literature. In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers found that SNAGs were effective for pain reduction and neck disability drop and range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache. (4) Manual therapy approaches like this help headache. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC uses Cox® Technic, a gliding, doctor-controlled neck treatment for such conditions as La Grande headache and neck pain.
