Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
There are a variety of reasons that might account for why we experience headaches. Neurologists Kandel (founder and medical director, Neuroscience & Spine Assocs., FL) and colleague Sudderth, who have written about back pain, here offer their own take on an ailment that affects millions of Americans. Readers are guided through getting a diagnosis and an appropriate treatment plan from their doctors. Topics covered include the more common types of headache, treatment options (and a timely chapter on Botox injections), and an illustrated section on neck and shoulder exercises. Do not expect an exhaustive study of every possible reason for experiencing headaches-the information is arranged in bite-sized pieces and does not answer all questions about headaches-but as an aid in helping readers see a pattern to their symptoms, this is a practical and accessible resource. Complementing the text are case studies based on the authors' patients. Highly recommended for all public libraries, even those with several pain/headache books in their collections, as the focus on diagnosis and the sections on cervicogenic headaches here are unique.-Elizabeth J.
