MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

In its different presentations, headache is one of the most common symptoms seen by family practitioners. The difficulty is in diagnosing the cause of the headache so that the appropriate treatment is provided, or if referral to a specialist is the recommended course of action.


The ABC of Headache helps with this dilemma and guides the healthcare professional to look for the possible causes of presenting symptoms. Based on real case histories, each chapter guides the reader from symptoms through to diagnosis and management.


This new ABC is a highly illustrated, informative, and practical source of knowledge. With links to further information and resources, it is a valuable text for healthcare professionals at all levels of practice and training.
