How to Treat quiz: Headaches in athletes

Relevance to General Practice

Headaches are common in both adults and children. Headaches can be classified as primary headaches (migraine, tension-type headache, trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias, other); secondary headaches (trauma, vascular, non-vascular, substance/withdrawal, infection, psychiatric disorder); or neuropathies and facial pains. When assessing headaches in athletes, it is important to consider both headache disorders that are common in the general population and causes of headaches to which athletes are more susceptible.
