Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michelle Finnegan, DPT, OCS, MTC, CMTPT, FAAOMPT(Bethesda Physiocare)
Description: This book offers readers a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to addressing patients with migraines.
Purpose: The purpose is to offer readers a comprehensive reference on the understanding and treatment of migraines. It therefore not only includes the pharmacological aspects of migraine management, but also several nonpharmacological approaches.
Audience: The book is designed for use by clinicians in any medical specialty who treat patients with migraines and other headaches. Practitioners who have an understanding of pain science will better appreciate the first section of the book, which is highly technical and focuses on pain mechanisms related to migraines. However, this should not deter clinicians or students who are less familiar with pain mechanisms or pain science from adding this book to their personal library. The chapters are very educational and demonstrate the need for medical professionals to understand pain processes to improve their treatment of these patients.
Features: The first of the book's four main sections covers foundational information, including the epidemiology, differential diagnosis, and pain science. The second section covers all aspects of pharmacological management. The third and fourth sections cover the manual therapies and other complementary and alternative medical therapies. All chapters are well referenced and written by experts in their respective areas. For practicing clinicians, the third and fourth sections are the most relevant as they cover the various options for treatment of patients with migraines. Several chapters include pictures and clear descriptions of specific treatment techniques. The best quality of this book is its insights into the various disciplines that can be involved in treatment of migraines. Granted, some may not be available in all areas of the country, but the book at least offers practitioners options for their patients should they need additional resources.
Assessment: A book that covers a single topic from foundational pain sciences and pathophysiology to diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and all aspects of treatment is difficult to find. This one covers all areas in enough detail to provide a great resource for those who treat this patient population.
