Do you ever have clients complain of repeated headaches? Chronic migraines, chronic tension-type headaches, and chronic cluster headaches are also known as primary chronic headaches. These primary chronic headache conditions affect about 3% of the general population, occurring predominately in females. These conditions have a significant impact on quality of life as well as economic and social costs.

Looking back on what I submitted is a little embarrassing.
