Cervicogenic Headache Treatment

At Holistiq Spine & Orthopaedic Clinic we understand the intricate relationship between your neck and your head. Cervicogenic headaches, while often misunderstood and misdiagnosed, are a real source of discomfort for many individuals. Our clinic specializes in addressing these headaches, offering comprehensive evaluations, and personalized treatment plans to alleviate your pain and improve your quality of life.

Understanding Cervicogenic Headaches

Cervicogenic headaches stem from dysfunction in the upper neck joints, leading to referred pain in the head. This condition can be challenging to diagnose due to its similarity to other headache disorders, such as tension-type headaches and migraines. However we specialize in identifying and treating cervicogenic headaches, offering you relief and clarity.

Causes and Pathogenesis

The anatomy of the upper cervical joints plays a significant role in cervicogenic headaches. Dysfunction in joints like the C2-3 zygapophyseal joint and the atlanto-axial joint can lead to referred pain in the head. Our clinic focuses on understanding the pathophysiology behind these headaches, ensuring accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Epidemiology and Clinical Features

Cervicogenic headaches affect a significant portion of the population, with prevalence ranging from 0.4 to 4 percent. These headaches often manifest as unilateral head pain that worsens with movement and may radiate from the neck to the frontal regions. Understanding the epidemiology and clinical features allows us to tailor our approach to each patient’s unique needs.

Diagnosis and Evaluation

At Holistiq, we employ a comprehensive diagnostic approach to confirm cervicogenic headaches. Our evaluations include detailed patient histories, physical examinations, and, when necessary, diagnostic imaging. We prioritize accuracy and precision in diagnosis to ensure the most effective treatment outcomes for our patients.

Treatment Options

Once diagnosed, we offer a range of treatment options tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Our treatments may include medication management, physical therapy, and interventional procedures such as anesthetic blocks. We prioritize minimally invasive approaches to provide long-term relief and improve your overall quality of life.
