Your Headache Isn't All In Your Head
Learn how headache pain really works, how the brain and nervous system contribute to headaches, and how to alleviate and prevent future headaches.
Your Headache Isn't All In Your Head: Neuroscience Education for Patients with Headache Pain is an important guide for patients who suffer from persistent or long-lasting headaches, translating the complex neuroscience of headache pain into language that's accessible to all. Studies show that people who understand how the brain and nervous system work together to create pain are much better off: they experience less pain, function better, have less fear and are more interested in healthy movement and exercise. This understanding is essential to recovery.
How do I get rid of my headache? Research shows that once you understand what's causing your pain, your nerves immediately begin to calm. Beyond education, you have many tools to help ease the pain; this helpful guide details what else you can do to prevent or relieve headaches.
