A cervical, or cervicogenic, headache starts as pain in the neck. A common chronic and recurrent event, it usually starts after neck movement and is associated with a reduction in the neck’s range of motion. Some people may mistake a cervical headache for a migraine or tension headache.
Treatments We Provide
After assessing your individual needs, we design a treatment plan just for you, usually involving manual therapy techniques to reduce pain and increase the neck’s range of motion. We may also have you do certain exercises to increase strength and endurance of certain muscles in the neck and upper back. We may also administer a soft-tissue massage or cardiovascular exercise. You can expect to attend two to three physical therapy sessions per week for up to six weeks.
