How can my Neck give me Headaches?
Very good question… Put simply, there are many nerves and factors involved… Nerve pathways that go to the brain from the first 3 vertebrae in the neck (C1–C3) converge on the way up with nerve pathways that supply the back of the head and also into the face (occipital and trigeminal nerves).
Consequently, when the nerves in your neck are irritated they may refer pain to your head. It’s not until this interference is cleared that Cervicogenic Headaches maybe relieved. Unfortunately pain killers and medications will just mask this message. It is important to find out the cause of your headaches and don’t put up with regular pain!
