There are many different types and causes of headaches; migraines, tension and cluster to name a few. But perhaps the most common and misdiagnosed is the cervicogenic headache, which often mimics migraines. This type of headache arises from a misalignment in the cervical spine. Some common causes of this can range from repetitive motions, poor posture, sleeping awkward, or more seriously trauma from a slip or fall. As you may have noticed, a lot of different types of events can cause this type of headache which makes it very common. If you haven’t found relief from your migraines yet, then we highly recommend chiropractic care!
Common symptoms of a cervicogenic headache may or may not include:
- A reduced range of motion in the neck.
- Pain on one side of the face or head.
- Pain and stiffness at base of head or neck.
- Pain around or behind the eyes.
- Pain in the neck, shoulder, or arm on one side.
