I Suffer From Cervicogenic Headaches
Cervicogenic Headache Treatment
Cervicogenic headache, according to the International Classification of Headache Disorders, is classified as a secondary headache disorder. Secondary headache disorders refer to headaches originating from a problem other than the head itself. This could be a dysfunction in the muscles, joints, discs, ligaments, or even nerves of the neck. Any of these aforementioned structures can then lead to the cervical afferent nerve fibres to be stimulated, to create pain pathways into the head, known as cervicogenic headache.
At the Brisbane Headache and Migraine Clinic, once treatment commences we expect a significant improvement to occur rapidly in 90% of our patients with Cervicogenic Headaches, within the first 5 treatment consultations.
