What is Cervicogenic Headache?

Cervicogenic headaches can mimic migraines, so it may be difficult to distinguish a cervicogenic headache from a migraine headache. The primary difference is that a migraine headache is rooted in the brain, and a cervicogenic headache is rooted in the cervical spine (neck) or base of the skull region.

What are symptoms of a cervicogenic headache?

In addition to a throbbing head pain, symptoms of a cervicogenic headache may include:

  • Pain on one side of your head or face
  • A stiff neck
  • Pain around the eyes
  • Pain while coughing or sneezing
  • A headache with certain neck postures or movement

Cervicogenic headaches can also cause symptoms similar to migraine headaches, such as light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, blurry vision, and an upset stomach.


How to treat and manage cervicogenic headaches?

A cervicogenic headache can be debilitating and recurrent, but several techniques can help you manage pain and prevent further occurrences.

Physical therapy
Your doctor may also recommend physical therapy to strengthen weak neck muscles and improve mobility of your joints. Your doctor may also recommend alternative therapies to lessen nerve, joint, or muscle pain in the neck. These include massage therapy, spinal manipulation through chiropractic care, cognitive behavioral therapy, acupuncture, and relaxation techniques. Other options for managing pain include:

  • Avoiding activities that worsen pain
  • Applying ice or heat for 10 to 15 minutes, several times a day
  • Using a neck brace when sleeping upright to prevent bending your neck forward
  • Practicing good posture when sitting, standing, or driving (stand or sit tall with your shoulders back, and don’t lean your head too far forward)
