summus laser for cervicogenic headaches


Cervicogenic headaches (CH) are a common type of headache that results from issues in the neck muscles and surrounding tissues. This type of headache causes pain in the neck area and radiates to the muscles on the head and or face. Sometimes the pain will be “behind the eyes”, and cause limited range of motion in the neck. Causes of CH can be trauma to the neck muscles such as a car accident or a fall, bad posture can cause CH, misalignments in the upper cervical vertebrae, and nerve compression are all potential causes of CH. Our Summus class IV laser has specific settings for dealing with this type of headache and other types of headaches such as migraine headaches. Our laser targets the muscles causing the headache and increases blood flow to the area, decreases pain muscle spasms and inflammation in the affected tissues.
