Conditions We Treat

Pediatric Headache Clinic

Headaches in children are very common. In fact, up to 90% of school-age children report having headache pain. Most of the time, headaches only occur occasionally and are easy to manage. However, some children experience more complex headaches with symptoms that interfere with their ability to focus at school or participate in activities.

The pediatric headache specialists at the Headache Clinic at Phoenix Children’s are experienced in diagnosing and treating many headache disorders in children. The most common of these is migraine.

Common Causes of Headaches in Children

Headaches can be caused by many different factors. The most common causes include:

  • Family history of headaches
  • Certain foods, drinks and additives
  • Head injuries, including concussions
  • Emotional triggers, such as stress and anxiety
  • Obesity
  • Illness and infections (such as cold, flu, strep throat)
  • Sleep patterns

Our team will work closely with your child and your family to understand the cause of your child’s headaches and find the treatment plan that’s right for them.
