Predicting the outcome of the greater occipital nerve block – an observational study on migraine patients with and without musculoskeletal cervical impairment.


The importance of neck pain and the trigeminocervical complex in migraine is of high pathophysiological interest since a block to the greater occipital nerve is more effective for some primary headaches than others. This observational study hypothesised that the response to manual palpation of the upper cervical spine predicts the efficacy of the greater occipital nerve-block.
