The upper cervical nerve roots (C1-3) are increasingly viewed as an important target for therapeutic intervention in headache, but their specific roles in the pathophysiology of head pain remain uncertain. An increased understanding of the role of C1-3 in primary and secondary headache disorders is important for progress with diagnostic and therapeutic interventions involving these structures.
