Sports-related or sports-associated headaches are common. They can be benign as in primary exertional headache or may signal serious pathology as in headache associated with traumatic subdural hematoma. Specific sports activities are associated with unique headache conditions such as decompression sickness headache or high-altitude headache, which mountain climbers experience along with other symptoms of chronic mountain sickness. The management of sports-related headaches requires an adequate understanding of its underlying etiology with subsequent cause-directed treatment plan.
