PATIENT STORY

Most headaches in children range from mild to moderate. With these, a child can take over-the-counter pain relief medications and manage for the rest of the day. But, what about the small percentage of children that have moderate to severe headaches?

Our headache tracking tool can help give parents a way to track symptoms, monitor progress and keep a log to show their child's physician.
