Pediatric Headaches

Hello everyone. Dr Brad here again.

Today we are going to talk about pediatric headaches which can be a real concern now that
a lot of kids are home schooling and sitting at their computer more than they typically would.
(I have seen this problem arise with some of my own pediatric patients.)

There are 3 probable cause for pediatric headaches in this particular circumstance;
time spent sitting at the computer, posture while sitting at the computer and eye strain.

Here is what you can do to help prevent headaches from occurring in the first place with your
own children.

Make sure they take a posture break every 30 minutes for 60 seconds. It can be a simple as
getting up out of the chair and walking around for 1 minute.

Secondly, make sure they sit with upright, healthy posture while interacting with any technology.

Eyes forward and chin up. This applies to any device (computer, tablet, cell phones etc.)

And finally you can purchase blue blocker glasses or install software that will decrease the amount blue light or excessive glare that is emitted from all electronic screens. This will help prevent eye strainthat can most certainly cause headaches.

If your children do struggle with headaches, I can help.

Just call to schedule an appointment for your free initial consult which also includes a free detailed posture scan and this will tell us most everything we need to know and then we can get started.
