The Comprehensive Headache Clinic at Children's Mercy Kansas City provides interdisciplinary care for children and teenagers (ages 5-18) who have headaches associated with moderate to severe functional disability or whose headaches have not adequately responded to initial medical treatments.
Moderate to severe functional disability involves significantly reduced participation in normal social, academic and physical activities for that age and/or concerning changes in mood and behavior.
