Pediatric Headache Clinic

 

Headaches in kids are very common. Thousands of children have recurring headaches that restrict their learning and other activities. Dr. Kara Lewis, Dr. Reena Rastogi and Dr. Robert Little specialize in finding out the true cause and the best treatment for children experiencing headaches, at our pediatric-dedicated headache clinic.

Our headache specialists at Phoenix Children's are part of only a handful of pediatric specialists nationwide, serving Arizona and the Southwest.

Up to 90 percent of school-age children report having headache pain. The most common disorder is migraine. Many children experience ongoing or recurring symptoms (chronic headaches/migraines).

The medical team in the Headache Clinic does a comprehensive evaluation to figure out the source of the child's headache and find the best treatment to help kids return to their normal lives.

Why a children's hospital?

It can be difficult for young patients to describe their symptoms. We use unique methods, such as a pain color chart and age specific language to communicate effectively with kids of all ages.

And when your child is treated at Phoenix Children's, they'll have better experiences and outcomes than at an adult facility. The hospital was designed by children, for children, the staff is specially trained to meet the unique needs of growing children, and we offer specialty clinical care, all in one place.
