Pediatric Headache Program

Headaches are one of the most common reasons for referral to a pediatric neurologist. For children and young adults who have recurrent migraines, tension-type headaches or other types of headaches; our specialists offer a number of treatments to reduce their occurrence. Whether your child has an acute attack or needs preventive treatment and lifestyle changes, there are many therapies available. 

Headaches are a chronic problem; our goal is to create a care plan to manage headaches. Together we work towards getting your headaches under better control. Our specialists can help your child enjoy a normal, healthy life.
