San Angelo Cervicogenic Headache Treatment

San Angelo headache care by Dr. PittmanWe know how difficult persistent headache pain can be. Dr. Pittman and our staff have worked with many patients in our San Angelo chiropractic office, and we've had great success in helping patients eliminate their headache pain.

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Cervicogenic Headaches

A 2016 research study verifies what we see in our practice. In this report, the authors started with 110 individuals who were suffering with 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 patients 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 investigation also found that these results were maintained at the three-month follow-up exam.

Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to treat headache, back pain, neck pain, and many other health conditions. If you're tired of suffering, give Dr. Pittman a call today at our San Angelo office at (325) 223-9355. We're here to help get you out of pain.
