A common type of headache that Physio’s can help with are headaches that come from your neck (known as a cervicogenic headache).

The muscles, nerves and bones in your neck can refer pain to the head causing a headache, in particular from the top of your neck/the base of your skull (where my thumbs are pointing in the picture).

Different conditions can cause this to occur, such as a whiplash injury (including after a concussion) or certain postures that put a lot of strain or pressure on the neck (for example sitting at a desk or driving a lot).

There can be a lot of different causes of a headache and a physio can help to work out if your headache is likely related to your neck, or refer you to a doctor when necessary. To find a physio in your area of Australia or New Zealand click here.
