PHILADELPHIA — Some teenagers whose concussion triggered chronic headache or migraine experienced prolonged pain, suffering and lack of function even after they were considered treated, according to study findings presented at the American Headache Society Scientific Meeting.
“We have seen athletes who suffer a concussion give up sports because they were concerned of the long-term impact such a hit would have,” Marcus Barissi, of the Cleveland Clinic pediatric neurology department told Healio Primary Care. “We wanted to see if these concerns were valid.”
