Evidence-Based Management & Treatment of Chronic Headaches 2018

Saturday, April 14, 2018
7:30 AM - 1:00 PM


Over 35 million Americans are affected by debilitating headaches. However, the management of chronic daily headaches is usually limited to the use of pharmaceutical medications with a low degree of efficacy.

The goal of this activity is to review the latest evidence-based literature on the treatment of chronic migraines and other headache disorders, and discuss novel alternative methods of headache management. The course will focus on improving patient outcomes by improving their functionality, as well as minimizing their dependence on opioids and visits to the emergency departments.

We will discuss the current classification of headache disorders (ICHD-3 beta), and share algorithms for stepwise management of these challenging cases; ranging from biofeedback and meditation, novel uses of preventive medications, Botox injections, anesthetic peripheral nerve blocks, and surgical decompression of the responsible nerves.
