Sie leiden unter zervikogenen Kopfschmerzen?

A picture that disturbs me all too frequently in my job is that of somebody who finally decided to find physical therapy treatment for his headache. Either the reason for the headache was misdiagnosed and consequently treated incorrectly or else he believed it would finally go away by itself after implementing some self-help remedies.

Headaches in modern society

Zu diesem Zeitpunkt war ein Stadium erreicht, in dem die Kopfschmerzen begannen, das normale Arbeitsniveau zu beeinträchtigen und das Ausmaß der Schmerzen unerträglich ist. Kopfschmerzen gehören mittlerweile zu den häufigsten medizinischen Beschwerden unserer modernen Gesellschaft mit ihrer Hektik und dem enormen Druck. Die Anforderungen eines übermäßig aktiven Lebensstils können zu einer Ermüdung der Halsmuskulatur führen, wodurch diese einer größeren Gefahr ausgesetzt ist, überlastet zu werden. Da die Ursache von Kopfschmerzen, die durch Nackenprobleme verursacht werden, schwieriger zu diagnostizieren ist und Röntgenaufnahmen zum Beispiel nichts Abnormales zeigen können, werden die Betroffenen oft frustriert zurückgelassen.

Zervikogene Kopfschmerzen

Headaches that arise in the throat (commonly called cervicogenic headaches) can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms can be similar to that of migraine headaches. Despite the fact that these signs are more common to migraines, they’ve been reported by patients experiencing cervicogenic headaches also. Major distinguishing factors between migraines and cervicogenic headaches are that cervicogenic headaches are influenced by the position and motion of the neck or head and there’ll be tenderness to touch along the bottom of the skull.

Was sind zervikogene Kopfschmerzen?

In cervicogenic headaches the pain originates from the cervical spine, neck and upper shoulder area. These headaches have regular pain patterns that are associated with muscular trigger points in the neck, shoulder and upper back area. The pain is frequently behind the eye, in the forehead, along the jaw line, in addition to the head and behind the ear.

Warum führen Nackenprobleme zu Kopfschmerzen?

The joints which connect the top levels of the spine to the bottom of the skull accounts for at least 50% of the movement of the whole head and neck area and is thereby placed under continuous stress since they keep the load of the mind. I’ve often heard patients complain that their head feels nearly to thick for the neck to endure. Other structures in the neck region like the discs, ligaments and tendons together with the joints have nerve endings that are sensitive to any kind of injury or strain. When irritated long enough or severe enough the nerves fire off a response and the result is a hassle.

1. Especially when you’ve got a history of chronic cervicogenic headaches and past injuries to your neck region, it’s a good idea to have regular sessions of treatment. The therapies known to alleviate these headaches are physical therapy and chiropractic treatment. These two therapies will employ unique methods that’s been demonstrated to bring appreciable relief. Regular pain management is particularly effective and leads to a substantial reduction in both the frequency of the headache episodes, in addition to the strength of the pain during an episode. Posture correction. This is a really important consideration for long-term management of headaches. Your neck muscles work very tough to balance your mind on top of your spine. A poor posture enables some muscles to become”idle” while others are overloaded, causing an imbalance in the way they work together. It’s however not possible to keep a perfect posture all the time and for that reason the second point is also important.

2. Increasing the strength and endurance of the neck muscle groups, while addressing muscular imbalance during exercises is well worth the investment in time.

3. Stellen Sie sicher, dass Sie auf einem Kissen schlafen, das den Standardbogen Ihres Nackens angemessen unterstützt, weil Sie viel Zeit im Schlaf verbringen und die richtige Positionierung so wichtig ist.

Bitte beachten Sie: Es ist immer der sicherste Weg, einen Arzt zu konsultieren, wenn es um Bewegungs- und Behandlungsprogramme geht. Jeder Mensch reagiert anders auf verschiedene Behandlungsregime und sollte daher individuelle Beratung finden.
