I read the excellent presentation of the 3 "Clinical Challenges in Otolaryngology" articles by Drs Fornadley,1 Friedman,2 and Levine3 in the May 2000 issue of the ARCHIVES. Speaking clinically, most of the frontal headaches that we see daily in ear, nose, and throat practice are cervical in origin. I do not like to use the term tension headache, because the cervical origin may be postural, anatomic, or traumatic. For example, in my practice, I cure many frontal headaches by securing a posture chair for the patients.
