Abstract

Suboccipital pain can be caused by problems relating to muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, discs and nerves of the upper cervical structures. History taking, symptomatological evaluations and physical examinations, and even radiological studies are often unavailable when making an exact diagnosis for the treatment of cervicogenic headaches. Therefore, diagnostic blockades have recently become essential for the diagnosis and treatment of nonspecific cervicogenic headaches. A third occipital neurotomy was successfully performed after diagnostic blocks were administered to a patient who had suffered from suboccipital neuralgic pain and referred pain to the temporal and retroocular areas.
