Botox For Migraines
Producing debilitating effects such as throbbing pain in the face, head and neck, as well sensitivity to light, dizziness and nausea, Migraines affect up to 3 million Americans each year. While traditional treatment consists of pain medication or behavioral modification and avoidance of triggers, Botox injections are a non-surgical procedure that have proven effective in the treatment of migraines.
While it remains unclear specifically how the Botulinum Toxin works to alleviate chronic migraine pain, it’s believed that when injected, it reduces certain pain pathways that play a role in the development of a migraine. For the right candidate, injections are typically given every 12 weeks to prevent the onset of migraines. These candidates must be adults suffering from 15 or more migraine headaches every month, each lasting 4 hours or more.
