HEAD & NECK
Head & Neck Conditions
If you have a headache in your temples, base/top of your skull and/or behind your eyes accompanied by neck or upper back pain you may be experiencing a tension headache. When dysfunctional or irritated (facet) joints are the cause the pain the condition is often termed cervicogenic (meaning coming from the neck) or facet (the specific joint) irritation/syndrome. The pain from this type of headache can be severe and sometimes accompanied by migraine symptoms such as nausea or sensitivity to light and sound. The duration of pain varies from episode to episode and can last anywhere from a few hours to a days/weeks.
