With the rapid changes in the lifestyles of modern, stressful and competitive times Headache disorders are extraordinarily common. Population-based studies have mostly focused on migraine. Although Migraine is the most frequently studied, is not the most common headache disorder. Other types of headache, such as the more prevalent Tension-Type Headache (TTH) and sub-types of the more disabling chronic daily headache, have received less attention. Various forms of headache, properly called headache disorders, are among the most common disorders of the nervous system. In many cases they are life-long conditions. The roots of the Indian traditional systems of medicine can be traced back to approximately 5000 BC. Ayurveda lays emphasis on ‘’Head” (Shira) by saying it as the Uttamanga - The best part of the body because all the indriyas (Sense organs) are located in the head along with the Prana (life) of the individual. (Cha.Su 17) Various Ayurvedic Scholars have elaborated Shiro Roga (Headache Disorders) which describes the prevalence of the diseases from ever since and need of requiring their proper management. An attempt has been made to correlate and understand Shiro-Roga with Headache along the principles of Ayurveda and the treatment modalities of it.
