A post-traumatic headache is a headache that can occur after a patient has received a head or neck injury. “Post-traumatic headache” is a general term with which no specific treatment is associated as the pain the patient experiences may emanate from many different structures in the head and neck.

Egilius Spierings, Neurology, answeredPost-traumatic headache develops after a head or neck injury, generally from relatively minor events that don't cause a loss of consciousness. Such injuries often cause daily headaches, but they may also share characteristics with migraine. Post-traumatic headaches may persist for a year or more.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
