In this instructional course, learners will understand the framework for diagnosing and treating various headache endotypes resulting from traumatic head and neck injuries. Multiple speakers will be discussing the pathophysiology and treatment of the following headache endotypes: 1. Tension-type headaches, 2. Craniofacial neuralgias, 3. Cervicogenic headaches, and 4. Migraines. We will be discussing treatment options, well-known and newer treatment options, both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic. For example, we will review in-depth a relatively novel class of medications, the CGRP-antagonists. We will demonstrate procedures and identify anatomy on a head and neck model for procedures during the breakout group.
