Cervicogenic headache

Cervicogenic headache is one of the common types of headache that is commonly attributed to prolonged use of digital devices in a slump and forward head posture. It causes pain around eyes and side of forehead, when turning or tilting head, or maintaining the same posture for long. It is due to the induced tightness in suboccipital muscle and strain of cervical facet joint irritate 1st - 3rd cervical nerve. 

Our physiotherapists apply manual therapy and acupuncture to relax the tight muscles caused by poor posture. It is followed by neck and back strengthening exercises to correct posture, in order to fix the root causes of the problem.
