If headache/migraine swaps sides it is a neck headache

If headache/migraine swaps sides it is a neck headache

The traditional medical model of headache and migraine, describes one of the key diagnostic criteria for cervicogenic headache as being a side-locked headache – which means that it is always on the same side – never on the other.

I have news for you. Based on over 13000 hours clinical experience with headache and migraine sufferers, I can confidently say that if your headache or migraine swaps sides between attacks, or within the same attack, it is a cervicogenic headache! … and the problem lies with the C2-3 spinal segment.
