HEADACHE in CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
Fullerton Neurology and Headache Center is a Children’s Headache Center, designated by the Migraine Research Foundation. Migraine and tension headaches in children are more common than most people recognize. Untreated, they can lead to depression, poor school performance, and reduced quality of life. Treatment can be challenging but is usually effective. Principles of diagnosis and treatment are similar to those in adults but require special expertise. We are also involved in research studies in migraine for children and adolescents.
