Posted in Orthopedics on Thursday, 16 July 2015

Have you ever heard of a Cervicogenic headache?

A Cervicogenic headache (CGH) is a type of secondary headache disorder brought on by the dysfunction of any neck joints.

When the neck joints become stressed they trigger pain signals that travel to the brainstem and is then interpreted as a neck headache.

Tennis elbow is not exclusive to active tennis players, in fact it’s possible for people who are not very active to develop inflammation in the elbow area. The inflammation affects the elbow joint that is held together by muscles, ligaments, as well as tendons and is accompanied by acute burning pain.

Work or recreational activities that involve repeating the same action may strain the muscles and tendons of your forearm, which help extend your wrist and fingers. Tennis elbow usually damages the tendons that attach on the lateral epicondyle, called the Extensor Carpi Radialis Brevis (ECRB).
