Headaches

Headaches are common after concussion.  There are a variety of reasons why headaches happen.  Knowing why you’re having headaches helps us to treat them accordingly.

All headaches share a common mechanism: your nerves and brain are interpreting normal signals (like movement, sensory input, thinking) as being dangerous, and so pain is produced.  Headaches are rarely a sign of damage or danger.
