Cervicogenic headache (CGH) is a secondary headache that originates in the cervical spine. CGH is generated by structures innervated by the C1 to C3 nerve roots, including the upper cervical joints and muscles. When the specific causes of the headache are identified, CGH can respond well to physiotherapy management. Treatment must be tailored to fit each patient’s impairments, but a multimodal approach, including manual techniques and exercise rehabilitation, has been found to be beneficial in the management of CGH.
This course aims to describe the key components of a CGH assessment and to explore evidence-based management options for this type of headache.
