MWMs to the cervical spine have been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of cervicogenic headaches (Hall et al 2007).
The International Headache Society definition of unilateral head pain without side shift, combined with neck pain and restriction of neck movement was used for cervicogenic headache.
Participants: Thirty-two subjects with cervicogenic headache and FRT limitation were randomised into the C1-C2 self-SNAG or the placebo group.
Conclusion: There is some evidence for the efficacy of the C1-C2 self-SNAG technique in the management of individuals with cervicogenic headache.
