Abstract

New daily persistent headache is a refractory headache with an elusive cause and treatment. Limited available data suggest that abnormalities in the musculoskeletal system may increase vulnerability to this type of headache. Osteopathic manipulative treatment has been used successfully to manage primary headache disorders. In this case report, a patient with new daily persistent headache and severe somatic dysfunction had resolution of her pain after osteopathic manipulative treatment. This case suggests that osteopathic manipulative treatment may be useful in patients with this typically treatment-resistant disorder.
