Preventing Cervicogenic Headaches with Chiropractic

Research Reveals Chiropractic Can Reduce Cervicogenic Headaches in Harrisburg

We know how difficult long-term headache pain can be. Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation and our staff have worked with many patients in our Harrisburg chiropractic practice, and we've had great success in helping people lessen their headache pain.

Research Supports Chiropractic Care Helps With Cervicogenic Headaches

A 2016 research paper confirms what we see in our clinic. In this paper, the authors started with 110 patients who were suffering from headache pain that originated in the cervical spine. 58 of these patients were given a series of neck adjustments; 52 were given some stretches and exercises. The treatment period for both groups was four weeks.

The report found that the people who received cervical and thoracic spinal adjustments "experienced significantly greater reductions in headache intensity, disability, headache frequency, headache duration, and medication intake as compared to the group that received mobilization and exercise."

The study also found that these outcomes were maintained at the three-month follow-up exam.

Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to treat chronic headache pain, back pain, neck pain, and many other health conditions. If you're tired of suffering, give Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation a call today at our Harrisburg office at (717) 657-2561. We're here to help get you help.
