Cervicogenic Headaches occur when joints and/or muscles are dysfunctional in the neck. This can cause pain in the head from a variety of sources:
- Compression of nerves that innervate the head
- Referred pain into the head from the neck from tight muscles
- Referred pain into the head from joints in the neck that are not moving properly
Upon physical examination, it can be easily determined if this is the cause of your head pain. Once diagnosed, comprehensive treatment to eliminate the cause of the pain can yield highly successful outcomes.
