Occipital neuralgia is a condition in which the nerves that run from the top of the spinal cord up through the scalp, called the occipital nerves, are inflamed or injured.
Occipital neuralgia is most commonly caused by pinched nerves in the root of a person's neck. Sometimes this is caused by muscles that are too tight in a person's neck. In some cases, it can be caused by a head or neck injury. Chronic neck tension is another common cause.
The medical treatment for occipital neuralgia can vary. Often, conservative treatments including heat, massage, rest, physical therapy, muscle relaxants, and anti-inflammatory medications are used as first-line options. But if you are not getting relieve by it then you should consult an Orthopedic Doctor
