  • Samer N. NarouzeEmail author


This chapter will review different proposed algorithms to guide practitioners to make a precise diagnosis and hence better utilize interventional management for common headaches and facial pain syndromes. In intractable resistant headaches, patients usually benefit the most from a multidisciplinary approach incorporating physical therapy, pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy (biofeedback and relaxation therapy), and the judicious utilization of interventional pain management modalities.
