Cervicogenic Headaches

If you have a headache that is only affecting one side of your head,
you may be experiencing a cervicogenic headache. This type of
headache may be accompanied by pain in the neck. The pain is caused

of the neck. Thankfully both osteopathy and acupuncture can help with
this type of headache.
