Finding the best ways to control pain
Where does it hurt?
Few things are more heartbreaking than seeing your child in pain. That’s why, at Children’s Minnesota, we have a program, and a philosophy, that’s dedicated to keeping kids as pain-free as possible, whether during a hospital stay, an emergency room visit or recurrent pain like headaches. The interdisciplinary pain program is one of the largest of its kind in the U.S., combining drug and integrative (non-drug therapies), to ease pain in babies, children and teens.
