Abstract

Migraine is a complex neurological disorder that is characterized by a complex neurobiology, clinical features that may overlap with over 300 causes of headache, and an association with major medical illnesses and comorbid diseases. This book provides a glimpse into the future, describing new treatment modalities, including neurostimulation technologies and biologics that are emerging as potentially valuable treatment options. The authors also deal extensively with the unique and complex management of migraine in women throughout the reproductive life cycle. Migraine is a compilation of the most up-to-date research advances in the biology and clinical science of the third most common illness in the world, along with a comprehensive guide to its treatment that includes established principles and recent findings.
