Headache and neck pain is one of the most common problems that I treat in my Los Angeles based clinic. Cervicogenic is just one type of headache and it by definition is caused by chronic stiffness and pain of the joints, fascia and nerves in the neck. These headaches are associated with stiffness in the neck with limited neck motion that creates radiating pain anywhere from the base of the skull pain that travels to create pain over the eye.
Causes of your headaches
Usually chronic headaches are associated with poor posture or prolonged and sustained positions that require the head to be forward relative to the trunk. This requires the neck muscles on the constantly be contracting and eventually can trigger headache symptoms. Computer workers experiencing headache is probably the most common problem seen in my clinical practice.
