The World Cervicogenic Headache Society (WCHS) is a professional society that was established in 1994 by a group of physicians from Canada, Australia, and the United States. The purpose of the Society is to increase awareness about headaches that originate in the neck (cervicogenic headaches) and to promote research and professional education. The Society is comprised of approximately 300 medical professionals and pain specialists including neurosurgeons, neurologists, university professors of medicine, anesthetists, physiologists, family physicians, dentists who specialize in restorative dentistry, chiropractors, and others working in pain management. Members regularly receive information and updates on research and treatment of cervicogenic headache, information on upcoming courses related to cervicogenic headache, invitations to yearly conferences on cervicogenic headache and related topics, and membership certification. The Society's main objectives include elucidating the relationship of neck pathology to headaches; ascertaining how frequently headaches are caused by neck pathology; disseminating knowledge of the Society among physicians who are interested in pain management; continuing the study of anatomy, physiology, clinical presentation, and appropriate treatment methods for cervicogenic headache; and promoting the merging of this entity with mainstream headache syndromes, such as migraine and tension-type headache.
