These are the typical symptoms of CERVICOGENIC headaches, which originate from the neck. When we stay in the same posture for a prolonged period of time, our neck muscles gradually become tight or start to spasm. As our neck muscles attach to our joints close to our head, the feeling of tensioning or pressure in the head can arise. This is common in office workers who sit and use the computer for prolonged periods.
As cervicogenic headaches are caused from the neck muscles and joints it can be treated and prevented by Physiotherapy. Give us a call on 3373 8770 today to make an appointment with one of our experienced physiotherapists if you are experiencing cervicogenic headaches.
