It’s a kid’s job to be curious, explore and discover. It’s our job to keep kids as safe and healthy as possible, so they can grow up to do all the great things kids are meant to do.
Whether a child is sick or injured, has a migraine or a headache, make sure you have the proper injury prevention strategy on hand.
Try cold therapy as an alternative approach to breaking migraines when you are experiencing one. Try a Headgrin headband that you can wear around the head and contains an ice pack inside. Keep the ice pack in the freezer until needed. When worn, the headband easily fits around the head, sides, and back of the head. The cold therapy is known to help reduce the inflammation associated with migraines.View a 2006 study by Dr. Serap Ucler and his colleagues, which was published in Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, that states using cold caps significantly decreased head pain associated with migraines.
My name is Peggy, and several years ago, a friend of mine asked me to take care of her son, Jonathan, who was home from school with a migraine headache.
