Know the causes of headaches and ways to treat children
Tension headaches are the most common type of headache in children
German neurologist Dr. Gudrun Jusrao explained that tension headaches are the most common types of headaches in children, and that the causes are due to: muscle strain in the area of ​​the shoulder and neck, excessive viewing of information materials, lack of movement, and psychological tension caused by exposure to bullying, for example.


She stressed the need to consult a doctor in case of continued suffering from headaches over a long period, or prevent the child from exercising his life as normal, such as frequent truancy and decline in educational attainment.

She also recommended consulting a doctor if the headache is severe and accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, vision disorders, sensitivity to light and noise, and said that these symptoms indicate the incidence of migraine.

Headaches can be countered by regular exercise and motor activities - especially endurance sports - such as walking, jogging, swimming and cycling, as well as relaxation techniques such as yoga, as well as limiting follow-up on media materials.
