Tension Headache and Cervicogenic Headache

November 14, 2009 by dean · Leave a Comment 

I have just been asked to review a book:

“Tension-Type and Cervicogenic Headache. Pathophysiology, Diagnosis and Management.”

for the Physiotherapy Journal, published in the United Kingdom.

Whilst I am just getting started, I can’t help but be a little excited, because combining Tension Headache and Cervicogenic headache in the same title suggests that the authors may be implying that there is significant overlap between the two headache types. My clinical experience suggests that tension headache is an unrecognised cervicogenic headache.
