Chronic Headaches after a Traumatic Brain injury



The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 1.4 Million people yearly suffer a traumatic brain injury.  When troops returned from the First World War suffering what was then called “Shell shock”, the first associations were made between chronic pain and brain injuries. As a Sacramento Brain Injury Lawyer, I have been well aware of how many of my clients suffering concussions or brain injuries also suffered from chronic headaches.

I saw confirmation of this correlation in a recent medical  review of some 1100 Medline articles over the past 50 plus years.  The study showed a prevalence of chronic headache pain in 56 percent of individuals suffering a brain injury, even a “mild” brain injury.  The full article can be found here.

I’m Ed Smith a Sacramento personal injury lawyer for over 30 years. If I can help you or a member of your family who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, please call me at 916-921-6400 in Sacramento for caring advice on the best steps to take.
