Probably: I can not say for sure because it depends on your individual situation but there are treatments that can help many people. The first thing I would advise is cranial osteopathy, but i do no know if that is available in India. I also advise homeopathy, which is often very effective for this, and many of the best homeopaths in the world are in India. Acupuncture might also help. Good luck!

Treatable &manageble: but not curable. While most patients with headaches and post-traumatic syndrome will improve with time, some studies have shown that 20-24% of patients may have a persistent headache two to four years after the traumatic injury. Ask your PCP for more info.
