Headaches are the most frequent cause of visits to primary care practitioners. Standard medical care for headaches is prescription of pain relieving medication. This report describes a 13-year-old female who had suffered from severe headache and neck pain for five days. Following a series of four chiropractic treatments over a 2-week period, her headache and neck pain resolved. A thorough search of the scholarly literature revealed very little regarding chiropractic treatment of headaches or neck pain in children. This patient’s response suggests chiropractic care may be effective in this area and invites further investigation.
