Headache Research

Headaches are common in children.  Nearly two out of three children will have a headache by age 15.  According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, headache is the most common form of pain.  It is also a major reason cited for children’s days missed at school.  Without proper treatment, headaches can be severe and interfere with daily activities.  Investigators at Nationwide Children’s Hospital are investigating ways to improve diagnosis and management of headache and work to identify disorders linked to migraine.
