Neurologist: I would take her to see a neurologist. That much head a neck pain is not normal for a 10 year old. Good luck.

Chiropractor: I have taken my children to a chiropractor that I trust for various aches and pains including neck, rib, back and shoulder pains. Go to the chiropractor yourself a few times to see what you think about his/her philosophy and techniques. Make sure the chiropractor is one who feels comfortable with kids (many do). A neurology consult is also warranted if that has not yet been sought.
