The most common types of headaches that physiotherapists will see during clinical practice are tension type headache, migraine and cervicogenic headache. These headache types have a global prevalence of 38%, 10% and 2.5% respectively.
Cervicogenic headache is a common cause of chronic headache which is often misdiagnsed. This misdiganosis arises from complex overlapping symptoms with several other different types of headache which are commonly seen in clinical practice.
In this new series of courses available to Physioplus members Ari Kaplan will talk you through all you need to know to differentiate and treat cervicogenic headache and cut through the complexity of headaches.
