    Childhood Migraines

    My son complains of headaches often. Doctors say it's childhood migraines.

    We are altering his diet a bit to remove things that could trigger it. We are making sure he eats frequently enough as this seems to trigger them. Attempting to ensure he gets a quality night sleep, tho this is no easy task.

    Anything else that might help?

    Have you seen any improvement with the change in diet? What are the problems that get in the way of good sleep?

    Childhood migraines are tough to manage and are a real challenge for parents.

    You could take your son for a massage or physical therapy session. The doctors at Corrective Chiropractic & Wellness helped treat my kid who was suffering from migraine.
