Check out our client, Dr. Matthew D. Hepler latest blog post about What is a Cervicogenic Headache?

If you have a headache that seems to start in your neck, then you likely are experiencing a cervicogenic headache (CGH). Usually, the pain occurs on one side of the neck, radiating to cause a painful headache that can feel like a steady ache or a constant dull pain. The pain may intensify if it is not treated.

Often a CGH is a result of problems from the cervical spine. Usually, the pain is triggered by problems with the C1-C3 vertebrae at the top of the spine.

A CGH can also result from strain on the neck, such as how you sleep or working on a computer all day. Sometimes they are also a result of an injury (whiplash).

Tumors, fractures, or infections can also cause a CGH. Because there are so many possibilities that may cause a CGH is important to see an orthopedic spine surgeon and get a proper diagnosis.
