Synopsis: Headaches are one of the most common medical complaints. Nearly everyone gets a one at some point in their lives and over 45 million Americans suffer with chronic headaches each year. Headache disorders are a major contributing factor to disability and lost-work time world-wide. Altogether, diagnosis and treatment of headaches make up 20% of all visits to neurologists. Headaches affect people of all ages, often throughout life.

What Nurses Know...Headaches is written by a nurse who has experienced having headaches all of her life. Some risk factors, like genetics, cannot be changed. But other "modifiable" risk factors can be altered by making lifestyle changes that reduce stress, avoiding dietary headache triggers, and refraining from the overuse of medications. Educating and motivating patients plays a key role in preventing headaches and reducing headache frequency. Other preventive strategies include using complementary and alternative therapies and practicing mind-body techniques such as deep relaxation, visualization, and biofeedback to help people gain control over headaches.

What Nurses Know...Headaches includes:

  • Headache Basics--Living With Problem Headaches
  • A Review of Complementary & Alternative Therapies
  • Discusses over a dozen headache types based the upon International Headache Society (IHS) classifications
  • Headache care, including coping measures, support strategies,and future treatments onthe horizon
  • A list of common headache triggers, including those related to diet, the environment, sensory over-stimulation, and more

From the Author: Why did I choose to write about headaches? Understanding what headaches mean, why they strike, and how we can help to alleviate, or prevent, problem headaches, are all intriguing questions--and I wanted to provide clear answers for headache patients. From an early age, headaches have been a part of my life, sometimes disappearing for years, only to reappear with alarming frequency or severity.  Like many of you, my genetic background and the way my body responds to environmental influences simply makes me more susceptible to headaches. I developed many coping methods over the years, which I share in this book.

But this book isn't only about what happens when we suffer one of the dozens of different headaches discussed--it's a book about solutions, based on the latest research in neurology and exciting advances in the development of new headache medications. A revolution in understanding and treating headaches is underway. And with a clear presentation of the many possible risk factors and "triggers" for headaches, What Nurses Know...Headaches will help you prevent headaches from occurring in the first place.
