Focused on finding successful solutions for headaches from the moment you arrive

We don’t waste any time looking for ways to help your child. We want our patients to be able to live their daily lives without the debilitating pain of chronic headaches. The entire visit will last about 30 minutes to an hour and will include a careful evaluation and physical exam. Based on the diagnosis, the provider will determine a treatment plan moving forward that may include further workups, medication management, lifestyle modifications and any follow-up appointments needed.  

Narrowing down the sources of headache pain

Part of treating chronic headaches is finding what’s causing them in the first place. Migraines are often a hereditary condition, but we can work with your family to find ways to reduce what triggers them. Common migraine triggers include: 

  • Bright Lights
  • Certain foods and drinks
  • Change in routine
  • Change in sleeping patterns
  • Environmental factors
  • Hormonal changes
  • Loud noise
  • Obesity
  • Stress
