Headache Medicine

Headache Medicine is a subspecialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of head and face pain. Its scope includes the diseases or categories of disease causing central and peripheral disturbance of structures or functions causing head and face pain and includes both primary and secondary disturbances of these structures or functions. Consequently, affected patients may present for clinical care in multiple specialty areas including primary care, such as family practice, general internal medicine, and specialty care, including, but not restricted to neurology, neurosurgery, otolaryngology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, oromaxillofacial surgery and psychiatry. For these disease management areas, the practitioner of Headache Medicine is often the principal care physician and may render all levels of care commensurate with his or her training.
