Many patients who experience a traumatic head or brain injury have persistent headaches after their injury, often for many months. These post-traumatic headaches can happen after mild, moderate and severe injuries and most closely resemble migraines. Treatments include:

  • Medicines for pain
  • Preventive medicines such as antidepressants, blood pressure pills and anti-seizure medicines
  • Physical therapy
  • Biofeedback
  • Botulinum toxin (as known as Botox) injections
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
