A cervicogenic headache is a pain in the head caused by misaligned vertebrae in the neck. Often caused by trauma such as straining, whiplash, or repetitive activities, the spinal nerves are pinched. The nerves become irritated and travel into the head, causing pain. Headache treatment cures focus on gentle chiropractic adjustments of the neck vertebrae.
Other headaches that respond well to therapy include migraines, cluster headaches, and tension headaches. Chiropractors align the spinal column using adjustments, state-of-the-art physical therapies, and massage to alleviate headache causes. Dr. Fantino also utilizes cervical traction and ice for headaches.
