When a child faces pain day in and day out, the routines they are accustomed to begin to fall apart. We’re here to fix that. Chronic abdominal pain affects 10% to 15% of school-aged children and 20% of middle and high school aged children. The condition leads to school absences and loss of ability to do their favorite activities. To help your child get back to what they enjoy, the Chronic Abdominal Pain Clinic at Children’s Health℠ will develop an initial treatment plan during your first visit with input from a pain management physician, gastroenterologist and psychologist.
