Editorial Reviews


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

This book is great! It covers "cervicogenic headaches," which are headaches that actually stem from neck pain. Who knew! The doctors say that some people have been diagnosed for years with migraines or tension headaches when the problem is really a pain in their neck which goes to the head. (They explain how that can happen.) So, drugs for headaches may work if you have neck headaches (or may not) but either way, you're not addressing the real problem. I followed their suggestions for neck exercises, medications and practical advice (like not holding the cell phone between your neck and shoulder) and feel much better!

This book also covers migraines, tension headaches, combination headaches and more. For example, some people get daily headaches. The authors discussed a study in which people cut their consumption of cola (with caffeine) and in some headaches, their headaches disappeared completely.

If you get a lot of headaches, you need this book.

I have had headaches for years. I have visited 4 neurologists, 2 chiropractors, 1 allergist, 1 ear nose & throat doctor, 1 accupuncturist and spent THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS on MRI's, medications, bloodtests, you name it, trying to relieve my headache pain. Does this sound like you? Then get this book!

I was diagnosed with migraine 5 years ago, but the medications were not working.

I decided to do research on my own and first read "Heal Your Headache" by Buchholz, since it was rated the highest on Amazon. I followed the diet, tried the drugs, etc. I tried this for over a year and the headaches became worse and more frequent.

I decided that I must have been misdiagnosed, so back to Amazon I went. I discovered this book 3 weeks ago and it has changed my life! I wish I had known about cervicogenic headaches at least 5 years ago. I have never heard of them, but after reading the book, confirming it with my neurologist and chiropractor, I am now on a completely new program to treat my chronic daily headaches. And it's working.

I wish the media would devote more attention to this little talked about problem so that others that have been misdiagnosed with migraine can get the relief they need!

This is a very good read, written by 2 neurologists. I found out more about headaches in this one book, then from any doctor I have seen.
