Cervicogenic headache treatment that works
Cervicogenic headaches are caused by a neck problem or lesion.
If you suffer from cervicogenic headaches, research confirms what you probably already know; your neck is the problem but no treatment seems to give anything more than short term relief.
We use the Watson Headache ® Approach, specifically designed to diagnose and treat the neck fault causing your cervicogenic headache.
The facts about cervicogenic headaches
Some medical experts still don’t understand the neck can cause headaches, and actually be a significant factor causing all kinds of headaches.
• 60-70% of all headache sufferers report neck based symptoms
• research shows 80% of cervicogenic headache sufferers are initially misdiagnosed with other types of headaches.
Treating cervicogenic headaches
We treat the cause: your neck fault.
Our hands-on technique focuses on treating the fault causing your symptoms, not just the symptoms themselves.
The Mornington Peninsula Headache Clinic uses the Watson Headache ® Approach to diagnose and treat the neck issue causing the headaches. We are one of the few clinics in Australia dedicated to using this approach, and experts in treating headache and related disorders.
Our simple four-step treatment process
Step 1: Your consultant will assess you to identify if you have a small neck fault causing your headaches. We find this issue in 80% of headache sufferers.
Step 2: If we identify the neck fault, we use specific testing to prove it is the cause of your headache symptoms, and begin a 2-week treatment plan using our hands-on techniques.
Step 3: If you show improvement over 2 weeks (like over 95% of our patients), we continue treatment for an average of 2-3 more sessions.
Step 4: We make sure you have the resources to self-manage your neck issues and headaches in the long-term.
Once the neck fault is confirmed in the first assessment, we get straight into your treatment.
Within 2 weeks, over 95% of people have significant change to the top of their neck and their headache symptoms. This is true even for those who have suffered from headaches for over 20 years.
