Headache is one of the most common reasons for visits to a doctor and the second most common reason for visits to a chiropractor. Athletes, and physically active patients, are no exception and can present a unique diagnostic challenge with potential overlapping sub-types and/or connections to trauma. We'll review the major headache syndromes and best practice treatments, with attention to those found in athletes and patients who lead active lifestyles.

This course was originally presented by Dr. Mary Huffman on October 25, 2022, and sponsored by ChiroMedica.
