According to the United States Centers for Disease Control, 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries (TBI) occur annually. TBI occurs most often in middle-aged white males and motor vehicle accidents are the most frequent cause. One of the most common symptoms following TBI is headache. A variety of headache syndromes may develop, but migraine-type pain is the most prevalent. Treatment is based on primary headache characteristics. Recently, athletes and military personnel have become the objects of intense study.
