Abstract

Background: Headache is a common disorder seen in 66% of the global population, and thereby has evolved as a major health issue, disturbing both quality of life and work productivity. Both entities of headache and depression are known to hamper function.

Method: In this case-control study, Physicians from the Department of Orthopaedics and Medicine identified the patients with a chief complaint of Cervicogenic Headache (CGH) and the nursing staff identified the patients who would be in the control group presenting complaints other than headache. The investigators obtained informed written consent from patients who were willing to participate and requested them to complete the PHQ-9 and formulated the results.

Conclusion: Patients with Cervicogenic Headache had a high prevalence of Depression as reported by the PHQ- 9 when compared to their counterparts who suffered from disorders other than headache.
