A cervicogenic headache is a specific kind of headache which is characterised by chronic hemicranial pain. This pain is actually caused not by a problem in the head itself, but by an issue in the upper regions of the neck. This can be the result of either a problem in the cervical spine or the soft tissue in the neck. In either case, the result is typically a great deal of pain.
With the help of our chiropractic team you can find fast and effective relief from the debilitating problem of cervicogenic headaches.
Headaches and migraines are among the most common complaints we hear about at Fornham Chiropractic. There are over 190,000 migraine attacks in the UK every day, and many people assume that suffering from headaches is a normal and unavoidable part of life.
This simply isn’t true. The pain of a headache is there to tell you that something isn’t normal, and needs to be resolved.
Why shouldn’t you simply tackle your pain with painkillers?
When suffering from a headache or migraine, many people automatically turn to painkilling drugs to try and solve the problem. While this can be effective in providing immediate relief from pain, this relief is ultimately temporary as you’re not tackling whatever it is that’s actually causing your headache.
The best course of action is to try and get to the root of your pain. One way to do this is do consider chiropractic care, which can determine whether your headache may actually be the result of a spinal issue. This is what the chiropractic clinic in Fornham can do.
