Comparison of posttraumatic headaches with nontraumatic headaches in a military population

Takeaway

  • Deployment-related concussion headaches are more frequent, severe, migraine-like and more often require medical consultation, compared to nontraumatic headaches.

Why this matters

    This is the first phenotypic analysis of headaches in a non-clinical military population. The findings may aid the development of targeted clinical trials for people with posttraumatic headaches.
