Children get headaches too! In fact, 30-50% of those who are under 18 years have recurrent headaches. The causes of headache can vary from a systemic viral infection or concussion to actual primary headache syndrome (migraine or tension headache). In this webinar, Shannon Babineau, MD, a neurology and pediatric faculty at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, will discuss how to evaluate headache, features of migraine in children, and research specific treatment options to alleviate the pain syndrome.
