This seminar aims to analyse the common and more severe causes of headaches, with a discussion of the multitude of specific headache types. The vast majority are benign, self limiting and do not require neurosurgical assessment. With the management and treatment of resistant headaches being complex, we will also aim to cover the important types of common and uncommon headaches and their prophylaxis, outlining a range of cutting- edge and gold standard treatment options available. We will also aim explore in more detail the more novel and advanced interventional treatments; botulinum toxin type A and neuromodulation. We aim to enable the attendees to become more educated on the types of headaches and available interventions.
1. Outline the key aspects of early headache management, including the use of imaging modalities.
2. Identify the causes of headaches.
3. Discuss the range of treatment options for headache including surgical options such as occipital nerve and spinal cord stimulation.
