Was sind zervikogene Kopfschmerzen?

Head and neck pain is also known as headaches. It can be throbbing or stabbing. Sometimes, it is not just confined to the head; it can also include pain from the neck. This is why it is called head and neck pain. There are three types of headaches: tension headaches, migraines and cervigogenic headaches. These are called primary headaches. Tension headache can also be referred to as a muscular headache.


It can cause neck and head pain. These headaches are caused by tightened or taut muscles, especially those in the neck and face. The pain is not only felt in the head, but also affects the neck. Head and neck pain often begins around the eye and extends to the neck and other muscles. Around four percent of the population experience chronic or recurring headaches.

These can be caused by a variety of factors, including a poor lifestyle such as not getting enough sleep or skipping meals. Incorrect posture can also cause neck and head pain. Incorrect posture can also cause tension and cramping in the muscles, which can lead to tension headaches.


Stress can also cause it. This is the most common type of neck and head pain. Migraine is a headache that is caused by swelling of the blood vessels, and chemical release around these blood vessels. This type of headache is usually throbbing, and only half of the head is affected. It can also cause neck and head pain.

Cervicogenic headaches, on the other side, usually start in the neck structures. The pain is felt in the neck and head. A severe headache can result from the neck, which is one of the weaker areas of the body. A cervicogenic headache, or a head-and-neck pain, can be caused by neck movements that last for an extended time or a sudden shift or movement of the neck.


To determine if the patient is suffering from cervigogenic headaches or head and neck pain, the doctor must perform a thorough exam. It is difficult to determine if it is a cervigogenic headache, or a head-and-neck pain, just like other types of head/neck pain. It cannot be diagnosed with x-rays. It is difficult to determine the cause of neck and head pain. A thorough examination by a doctor is required.

There are many symptoms that can be present, including nausea, pain in the back or inside of the eyes, or constant pain from the neck to the head. The patient may feel so overwhelmed by the neck and head pain that it can affect his daily life. It can disrupt one’s daily life. The throbbing or pulsating pains in the neck and head area can make it difficult for the patient to do anything.


Although it is rare for patients to experience a chronic cervigogenic migraine, there are some cases in which they may experience repeated or frequent attacks. Physical therapy can be used to treat the headache.
