Articles Did you know that Botox treatment could help with Chronic Migraines?
It’s common to associate Botox with smooth, youthful skin, but did you know that Botox has other uses? Botox is now an approved treatment for chronic migraines. If you suffer from migraines on a frequent basis, we may be able to help.
Migraines can make life a misery. Far from just being headaches, migraines can be very serious and they can have a very negative impact on your work and social life. Many people suffer from severe headaches when they have a migraine, but they can also cause nausea, sensitivity to light, sickness and changes in your vision. If you’ve been struggling with migraines and nothing you do seems to make much of a difference, we may be able to offer a solution.
How does Botox help migraine sufferers?
Botox is most well-known for reducing the visibility of facial lines and wrinkles. It does this by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles, which prevents contraction and encourages the muscles to relax. With migraine treatment, Botox is used to block signals that cause you to experience pain and to relax the muscles and reduce tension.
Who can benefit from Botox?
Botox is not recommended for people who suffer from headaches from time to time or those who have a migraine infrequently. This therapy is designed for people who have chronic migraines, which equates to around 15 days of headaches or 8 days of migraines per month. Botox is also recommended as a treatment option when other therapies, such as medication, have failed to produce effective outcomes.
