How does this study impact clinical practice?

  • Post-concussion recovery for patients with a history of migraine (particularly if migraines were more frequent than monthly) will include a greater number and severity of symptoms up to 12 weeks after injury, suggesting patients should be monitored and/or their treatment adjusted during this time.
  • For the majority of patients, headache frequency will return to their previous pre-injury levels 12 weeks post-concussion.
  • A larger cohort of people with more frequent pre-injury migraine is required for further analysis.
