Headache attributed to head trauma
Posttraumatic headache is common following head or neck trauma. The International Headache Society defines posttraumatic headache as “acute” if headache develops within the first 7 days after the accident and resolves within the first 3 months and “persistent” if headache lasts longer than 3 months. Therapeutic treatment of posttraumatic headache should be individualized and comply with the treatment options for the underlying or accompanying primary headache disorders it resembles.
