Cervicogenic Headaches

Headaches where the pain originates in the cervical spine, neck and upper shoulders are often referred to as a cervicogenic headache. Many times, these headaches can be a byproduct of whiplash, neck injury or muscle trauma due to poor prolonged posture or severe stress. Cervicogenic headaches, like other types of headaches are different for different people; some are more severe, some present in the head while others have pain behind the eyes . There are two symptoms that are generally exclusive to those with cervicogenic headaches. The first is that the headache can be made worse or actually onset by head or neck movement. The second is that there is marked tenderness in the suboccipital region.

It is obvious that when it comes to cervicogenic headache symptoms, the neck plays a significant role in diagnosing and assessing symptoms. Some may experience symptoms that are not covered here and still be suffering from cervicogenic headaches. It goes without saying that as a unique individual; you should be diagnosed and treated as such.

One of the most effective ways of relieving Cervicogenic pain is with Chiropractic treatment. A chiropractor manipulates the bones, and muscles in the neck areas that have moved out of alignment to assist the body to bring fresh blood into the area to create a healing environment.
