Now featuring new information on available medications, this practical guide describes a complete treatment program that enables headache sufferers to get more relief with less medication use; reduce the frequency of headaches; and become active collaborators in their own multidisciplinary care. The authors explain in clear terms the wide range of medical, neuromuscular, psychosocial, and dietary variables that can affect headache activity.
