Cervicogenic headache (CGH) is a secondary headache that affects up to 4.1 percent of the population. While the upper three cervical segments have been identified as the source of CGH, dysfunction of the upper trapezius can also be implicated in this headache condition. This course explores in detail the assessment and treatment of the superior scapula, focusing specifically on the relationship of upper trapezius to CGH.


This course aims to introduce the relationship between upper trapezius and CGH and to discuss assessment and treatment options for upper trapezius dysfunction.


This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
