Headaches are a very common problem and can have many causes.
The commonest form of headache or migraine is ‘cervicogenic’ (this means caused by problems in the neck) either due to tension, stiffness or wear and tear of the neck joints.
There are many muscles around the neck which can cause restriction to the vascular system and irritation of small nerves around the base of the skull.
