What are Cervicogenic Headaches?
Not all neck restrictions have associated headaches. Most of the time a pain in the neck is just that, but if your neural system becomes stressed or involved, the pain in the neck can be carried along other sensory nerves and expressed as pain in your head.
Cervicogenic headache occurs when the mechanical restriction in your neck causes a neural sensitivity of the trigeminal nerve. By definition, cervicogenic headache is when the origin of the pain in your head, is your neck. The top two vertebrae are the most common culprits, and the symptoms are quite classic, and easily identifiable, if you know what to look for.
