Previous studies have shown that patients with episodic migraine may present alterations in blink reflex, particularly regarding habituation to the stimulus, while TTH, cluster headache, cervicogenic
headache and hypnic headache all presented negative or controversial information on the blink reflex responses.
Incidence of ponticulus posterior of the atlas in migraine and cervicogenic
headache, migraine without aura and tension-type headache.
Abstract: Objectives: To determine the effect of a C1-C2 sustained natural apophyseal glide (SNAG) as compare to posterior anterior (PA) vertebral mobilization on cervicogenic
Eighteen patients (15 men, 3 women; 42-64 years of age) with at least a 6 month history of shoulder pain of non-neurogenic, cervicogenic
or systemic origin, were randomised into two groups (a trigger point group or a sham acupuncture group) and administered treatments on 5 occasions over 5 weeks.
14) The fused cervical vertebrae cause segmental dysfunction and can lead to Cervicogenic
angina due to cervical nerve root irritation, mimicking true cardiogenic angina.
headaches: an evidence-led approach to clinical management.
This includes Orthopaedics, Rheumatology, MSK Pain and non-MSK Pain Management (excluding headaches but including cervicogenic
pain), Physiotherapy (excluding neurological, cardiorespiratory, paediatric, amputee and falls prevention), Osteoporosis and associated Podiatry services.
They cover the healthcare professional's responsibility, pain constructs, anatomical and physiologic considerations, comorbid conditions, and the neurophysiology, biopsychosocial model, and epidemiology of orofacial pain, then general assessment, diagnostic classification, vascular and nonvascular intracranial causes, primary headache disorders, episodic and continuous neuropathic pain, intraoral pain disorders, the diagnosis and management of TMD, cervicogenic
mechanisms and extracranial causes of orofacial pain and headaches, the impact on sleep (a new chapter), and biobehavioral considerations.
This is the most commonly reported symptom, either cluster headaches, tension headaches, migraines or cervicogenic
(whiplash association) and may persist for several days post injury.
However there is lack of clinical evidence supporting long-term use of opioids for chronic headaches such as migraine, chronic daily headache, medication overuse headache, or cervicogenic
The RF technique can be used to help patients with chronic low-back pain, neck pain and pain related to the degeneration of joints from osteo-arthritis, cervical/thoracic/lumbar and sacral vertebral columns joints pain, cervicogenic
and migraine headaches.
