DO you suffer from headaches? There are more than 300 types of headaches with many different symptoms and causes. One of the most common types of headaches is a cervicogenic headache. In simple terms, this is a headache which comes from your neck and is commonly seen in patients between the ages of 20 and 60.
Cervicogenic headaches usually occur when the neck loses range of movement and excessive stress is placed on the upper joints of the neck. This may occur due to an event such as trauma from a car accident. However, more commonly, it is due to repetitive or prolonged stress being placed on the neck from poor posture, whether slouching in front of the TV, at work, on the computer, sitting on the train or driving.
