Cervicogenic Headaches

Cervicogenic Headache

Cervicogenic headaches are defined by the American Migraine Foundation as “pain perceived as occurring in a part of the body other than its true source; it is perceived in the head from a source in the neck;” therefore, a cervicogenic headache is a secondary headache, which means that it is caused by another illness or physical issue. 

In order to get down to the causes and conditions of the actual cause of a cervicogenic headache, Dr. Arash Noor of BodyPro Chiropractic and Sports Medicine in Los Angeles takes a holistic look at the entire body and assesses it for its aches and pains, experiencing it as a headache. 

Oftentimes, the cervical spine and its component bone, disc and/or soft tissue elements are responsible for the headache. The reason for this is that numerous pain-sensitive structures exist in the upper neck and back of head regions. This accounts for the shooting pain as a result of there being existing dysfunction in these regions of the body. 

Thankfully, Dr. Arash offers hands-on concierge-like service to his patients at BodyPro Chiropractic and Sports Medicine. With the use of physical therapy and minute adjustments, Dr. Arash Noor is able to assess the situation and administer the most fruitful recovery plan available using state-of-the-art techniques. 

Cervicogenic headaches result from the junction of the skull and cervical vertebrae, where there are regions that are pain generating. 

Physical therapy and an ongoing exercise regimen are usually the best restorative and preventative measures in achieving relief from pain experienced by cervicogenic headaches. At BodyPro Chiropractic and Sports Medicine, Dr. Arash Noor focuses on old injuries that make exercise difficult or painful; sets realistic goals for better health; and determines a schedule to fit your unique needs. The great news is that physical therapy doesn’t have to be arduous. It can be a fun, uplifting experience that rejoins your mind, body and spirit in a way you never dreamed possible. 

Ending the pain of cervicogenic headaches without the use of medicine or in conjunction with a primary care physician can benefit the overall health of the individual for the long term. There is no need for surgery or additional lengthy procedures when you visit a chiropractor to meet your physical needs, particularly when you are already experiencing moderate or severe pain.
