Headaches can warn of a more serious disorder, so it is important to seek medical attention if your child has severe, frequent or sudden headaches.
Your child's pediatrician can refer patients to a neurologist at the Headache Clinic at St. Louis Children's Hospital. The pediatric Headache Clinic provides therapy and treatment for a wide variety of headaches including:
- tension headaches
- migraine headaches
- cluster headaches
- headaches resulting from blows to the head
Treatment and therapy options include medication, lifestyle modifications and relaxation techniques.
The clinic is staffed by a team of specialists, and physician referral is required for an appointment.
Please contact your child's pediatrician for a referral or call 314.454.5437 for more information.
