Headaches are a common and potentially disabling problem for children and teens. Our neurologists at Dayton Children's are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of headache disorders in children and adolescents. Our providers have the expertise necessary to treat those headaches and help patients meet their potential to live a life uninterrupted by pain.
what will my first appointment look like?
The neurologist will sit down with you and your child to learn about their headaches, how often they occur, how long they least, possible triggers and other information. The neurologist will then work thiw you to develop a plan of care that may include laboratory investigations, imaging, lifestyle changes or starting medications.
how often will I have follow-up appointments?
At the beginning, your child will have appointments every 1-3 months to make sure the plan of care is working for your child's headaches. If your child continues to do well on their treatment plan, visits may be farther apart.
