Recognizing exercise-related headache.
Phys Sportsmed | Published : 1997
Active patients may suffer not only from the common headache syndromes that plague the general population, but also from headache brought on by exercise. Valsalva-type maneuvers can bring on exertional headache; maximal or submaximal aerobic activity can precipitate effort headache. Trauma to the head and neck can lead to posttraumatic headache. Other headache syndromes in athletes include cervicogenic headache, goggle headache, diver's headache, and altitude headache.
