Any intervention that improves the headache in terms of frequency, severity, or duration, without unwelcome side effects, has value. The term treatment is not limited to any particular modality and may include medications, bodywork, complementary medicine, counseling, and education. If a therapeutic approach is safe for the patient, it should be considered.
The main treatment plan categories include:
Rescue – treatment when a headache is staring you in the face
Prevention – treatments aimed at keeping headaches from developing
Lifestyle modification – strategies to identify, modify, and eliminate triggers that can contribute to headache
