Pain Program

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.

What to expect

As the longest-running pediatric clinical integrative medicine program in North America, the integrative medicine program is truly unique. We're dedicated to helping kids heal using every tool at our disposal. Here's how your family might meet us:

Outcomes and Research

Choosing where to bring your child for care is a major decision. You need all the information you can get. And you want it in a clear, straightforward form that helps you make the right choice for your family.

Integrative Medicine

At Children's Minnesota, we understand kids and take care of more than their physical well-being – we care for body, mind, and spirit. Children's pediatric integrative medicine program works with medical staff throughout the hospitals and other clinics to address all three. The program is the longest-running pediatric clinical integrative medicine program in North America.
