Cervicogenic Headache Relief Happy Valley Cervicogenic Headache Relief Happy ValleyMillions of people suffer from headaches every year. For some people headaches may be mild and rare, for others headaches may be consistent and debilitating. If you suffer from headaches that feel like they might cause your eye to pop out, there is a good possibility that they may be stemming from neck pain. Cervicogenic headaches occur as pain that is perceived by the suffer to be occurring in another part of the body than the true source of the issue. Often in cervicogenic headaches this “true source” lies in the upper trapezius, the levator scapulae, or the suboccipital muscles. These muscles influence our neck posture and contribute to our ability to carry and lift things while protecting our neck from injuries. When these muscles are used incorrectly, however, they can compress and irritate the complex network of nerves causing persistent and severe headaches.
