There is a continuum with headaches, from,
- Migrainous headaches (nausea, dizziness, impaired vision)
- Tension headaches (feels like a tight band around the head)
- Cervicogenic headache (coming from the neck)
They all can cross over depending on the individual. A large proportion of headaches do come from the neck (cervicogenic). Often they come from the back of the neck and refer up into the head, and can sometimes come to the front of the head and the eyes. If you think this is the case, it might be worthwhile having a chat to one of our Physio’s to determine if it is a neck based issue rather than a migraine. If so, there are steps you can take rather than turning to medications or getting scans.
Stay tuned for our next part on headaches which covers what you can do at home to minimise the chance of headaches.
