Alexandria, KY Cervicogenic Headache Treatment

Alexandria, KY headache care by Dr. WagnerWe know how difficult persistent headache pain can be. Dr. Wagner and our staff have worked with many men and women in our Alexandria, KY 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 paper confirms what we see in our office. In this study, the authors started with 110 individuals who were suffering with headaches 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 study found that the individuals 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 chronic headache pain, back pain, neck pain, and many other health conditions. If you're tired of suffering, give Dr. Wagner a call today at our Alexandria, KY office at (859) 448-0056. We're here to help get you out of pain.
