Cervicogenic Headaches


If you’ve recently been involved in a car accident, you may be experiencing headaches, which can be a common aftermath. Among these, cervicogenic headaches are particularly significant because they stem from issues in the neck—often a direct result of auto collisions. Here, we explore the nature of these headaches, their symptoms, and the treatments available to alleviate them.


What are Cervicogenic Headaches?

Cervicogenic headaches are a type of headache that originates from the cervical spine or the base of the skull. These headaches are often caused by a neck injury, such as those sustained in motor vehicle collisions. The pain may start in the neck and then spread to the head, typically felt on one side.

Symptoms of Cervicogenic Headaches:

The symptoms of cervicogenic headaches can vary but commonly include:

  • Pain that starts in the neck and spreads to the head
  • Pain on one side of the head or face
  • Steady pain that does not throb
  • Pain that can be triggered or worsened by neck movement or specific neck positions
  • Stiffness of the neck
  • Pain that may radiate to the shoulders or arms

Managing Cervicogenic Headaches

Effective management of cervicogenic headaches is essential for recovery and quality of life. Our treatment plans are designed not only to alleviate the pain but also to address the underlying issues in the cervical spine that contribute to these headaches. Patients are advised on how to modify activities and ergonomics to prevent pain recurrence.
