Guideline for the Clinical Management of Persistent Headaches
Associated with Neck Pain

The Ontario Protocol for Traffic Injury Management (OPTIMa) Collaboration 2015~ FULL TEXT

Refer to Section 5 (page 119) for cervicogenic and chronic tension-type headache information.

Evidence-Based Guidelines for the Chiropractic Treatment
of Adults With Headache

J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2011 (Jun);   34 (5):   274–289 ~ FULL TEXT

Evidence suggests that chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, improves migraine and cervicogenic headaches. The type, frequency, dosage, and duration of treatment(s) should be based on guideline recommendations, clinical experience, and findings. Evidence for the use of spinal manipulation as an isolated intervention for patients with tension-type headache remains equivocal.
