Cervicogenic headaches are often not constant, but come on in fits and starts. We often see that cervicogenic headaches are present on one side of the head and are provoked by movements of the head. This type of headache is caused by malfunctioning of the deeper muscles of the neck. The severity of these headaches can vary and may even radiate to the same arm as the side where the headache is located. The diagnosis of cervicogenic headache is easily made by a physiotherapist. The duration of this type of headache varies, this is partly due to how the complaint is dealt with. If you do not get help from a physiotherapist, the complaints can last for a long time, for example months to years.
