Top customer reviews
From the fascinating history of headache to the description of countless headache types and therapies, this comprehensive text captures the essence of headache management.
Two leading experts in their field, the authors stress the doctor/patient relationship as a partnership. This type of partnership can provide the patient with a sense of empowerment to take some control of their headaches. This reader firmly believes that a pleasant working relationship with their physician is crucial, particularly in headache management.
Throughout the text, lifestyle changes have been incorporated as well as recommendations for maintaining daily routines. Additionally, medical therapies, such as various medications and their uses are fully examined. Alternative therapies are explained in detail as well, from herbs and supplements to acupuncture and relaxation techniques.
This publication is also an excellent resource for family and friends of headache sufferers. Taking the time to read this book will hopefully provide some insight into their loved one's pain and difficulties.
I highly recommend this book as an enhancement (or even a beginning) to any "headache library".
