9780071457361: The Headache Cure: How to Uncover What's Really Causing Your Pain and Find Lasting Relief

Two top neurologists show the millions of chronic headache sufferers how to identify their type of headache and unlock the key to finding safe, soothing relief

Every year, countless people with chronic headaches are misdiagnosed. Often they receive medications that exacerbate their problem, or they overuse over-the-counter painkillers, risking serious damage to the liver and kidneys. The Headache Cure shows sufferers how to identify the real cause of headache pain through self-evaluations, develop an effective treatment plan to deal with acute headaches, and control the triggers that will limit their number and severity.

Review:

There are a variety of reasons that might account for why we experience headaches. Neurologists Kandel (founder and medical director, Neuroscience & Spine Assocs., FL) and colleague Sudderth, who have written about back pain, here offer their own take on an ailment that affects millions of Americans. Readers are guided through getting a diagnosis and an appropriate treatment plan from their doctors. Topics covered include the more common types of headache, treatment options (and a timely chapter on Botox injections), and an illustrated section on neck and shoulder exercises. Do not expect an exhaustive study of every possible reason for experiencing headaches - the information is arranged in bite-sized pieces and does not answer all questions about headaches - but as an aid in helping readers see a pattern to their symptoms, this is a practical and accessible resource. Complementing the text are case studies based on the authors' patients. Highly recommended for all public libraries, even those with several pain/headache books in their collections, as the focus on diagnosis and the sections on cervicogenic headaches here are unique. - Elizabeth J. Eastwood, Mesa P.L., Los Alamos, NM ( Library Journal 2005-10-01)

From the Back Cover:

Take control and stop letting headaches run your life!

Your headaches are affecting you at work and at home. You've seen a doctor about your headaches, but the prescribed treatment isn't helping--it may even be making the problem worse. If you are one of the millions who suffer from severe chronic headaches or migraines, this book can change your life. Written by two neurologists with a combined forty years of experience treating thousands of headache patients, The Headache Cure shows you that the key to getting rid of headaches is to:

  • Zero in on the real cause of your pain
  • Develop a safe and effective treatment and prevention plan
  • Recognize and control headache triggers

This book arms you with the knowledge and tools to live headache free for life, including:

  • Self-evaluations to identify what type of headaches you have
  • Exercises, medications, and other treatments for the commonly misdiagnosed cervicogenic headache
  • Preventative medications that keep migraines at bay
  • The latest research on Botox therapy for treating severe headaches
  • The low-down on acupuncture, physical therapy, massage, and other alternative approaches
