Cervicogenic headache (CGH) is a chronic, secondary headache that originates in the cervical spine. Patients with CGH are highly likely to have myofascial trigger point pain caused by overactivity in their anterior neck muscles, including sternocleidomastoid (SCM), as well as weakness of their deep neck flexors. The anterior (anteriolateral) neck should, therefore, be considered when assessing and treating CGH.
This course aims to evaluate the role of the anterior neck in CGH. It also aims to introduce methods of assessing and managing dysfunction in the anterior neck.
