Headache disorders are highly prevalent and are associated with significant disease burden for the individual and the wider community. There are many different types of headaches, from primary headaches like migraine to secondary headaches like cervicogenic headache. Cervicogenic headaches may respond to exercise and manual techniques whereas other headache disorders require medical review. Because physiotherapists often encounter headaches in clinical practice, it is important that you can make a differential diagnosis between different types of headaches and detect any red flag signs and symptoms.


The aim of this course is to equip you to differentiate cervicogenic headaches from other types of headaches.
