Gerrit DeVree

Gerrit DeVree underwent testing at Duke University on October 16 to determine the cause of unrelenting headaches. Tests results came back negative--providing no exact explanation or clear path of treatment. Doctors suggested that the headaches may be cervicogenic in nature--originating from a potential injury to the neck. Steroid injections might provide some level of relief.
