“There are no FDA-approved medications for concussion or posttraumatic headache, and we really don’t have good treatments in general.”

Mia Minen, MD, MPH, sat down for an interview to discuss why behavioral therapies could be an effective and easily accessible treatment for posttraumatic headaches following events like concussions.

Minen, an assistant professor of neurology and director of headache services at NYU Langone, pointed to the lack of effective treatments and FDA-approved therapies for this headache sub-type.

In this interview, she discusses the creation of an accessible digital platform that can help patients track their symptoms and receive progressive muscle relaxation therapy.
