Migraine & Headache Care
Migraines can cause nausea, sensitivity to light and significant pain for hours to days, keeping you from participating in activities you enjoy. There is now hope for chronic migraine sufferers, such as Botox injections that can block the pain-causing chemicals in the nerves and bring relief.
What is Botox for Headaches?
There is no cure and no specific remedy for migraines, aside from over the counter medications, various seizure medications and stronger pain medications. But now Botox has emerged as the surprising treatment for those who suffer from the crippling condition.
What to Expect
Migraine patients who meet the criteria for chronic sufferers receive shots every 12 weeks in a fixed dose to seven different areas of the head and neck. When used as treatment for chronic migraines, Botox is covered by insurance.
