Physiotherapists are very familiar with cervicogenic headache, a secondary headache from a cervical musculoskeletal disorder. However between 70 – 80% of persons with primary headaches such as migraine and tension-type headache also report neck pain. Neck pain in migraine is a significant symptom and more common than nausea. Migraineurs commonly seek neck treatment as manipulative therapy and exercise in attempts to obtain relied of neck pain and headache. However the evidence indicates that less than half of the headache associated neck pain is associated with cervical musculoskeletal dysfunction. This course will discuss headache associated neck pain and the need for a skilled physical examination to determine the presence of a pattern of musculoskeletal dysfunction to indicate who might be suitable for local neck treatment.
