Management of sleep problems may lessen headache frequency and severity in pediatric patients
Mayo Clinic pediatric neurologists offer individualized treatment that may also include lifestyle changes, biofeedback, and trigger point and botulinum toxin injections. Chronic daily headache affects 1 to 3 percent of children in middle school.
Sleep disturbances affect children's brain development and quality of life
Up to 30 percent of children suffer from sleep disturbances, which can cause physical, cognitive and developmental outcomes. Symptoms, diagnosis criteria and treatment differ for adults and children. Mayo specialists conduct more than 800 pediatric sleep studies each year.
