The Lurie Children's Difference
Pediatric headache and migraine can be quite debilitating, requiring a comprehensive and patient-based approach to treatment. Our Pediatric Headache Program team takes time to consider each individual patient and the possible contributing factors to their headache. We have an integrative approach to treatment including headache lifestyle counseling, herbal supplements and evidence-based medications in an individualized treatment plan. We are involved in cutting-edge clinical research trials for new pediatric migraine treatments.
For the patients that qualify, we offer a headache procedure clinic. These procedures include supraorbital nerve blocks, occipital nerve blocks, sphenopalatine ganglion blocks and trigger point injections. In the future we plan to implement botox injections for our adolescent patients with intractable migraine.
