Although it is widely known for its unique ability to reverse the signs of aging, Botox has also been proven to be an effective treatment for chronic migraines.
Roughly 12% of Americans suffer from the debilitating pain of chronic migraines. These patients typically describe the pain as a severe throbbing that is accompanied by nausea and an increased sensitivity to bright lights and sounds.
Americans diagnosed with chronic migraines typically experience these intense headaches at a minimum of fifteen times per month, with each headache lasting several hours. Due to the frequency and severity of these symptoms, chronic migraines can cause major disruptions in the personal and social lives of patients.
Although the FDA states that patients interested in treating their chronic migraines with Botox should begin by discussing this option with their doctor, they have approved Botox injections for the treatment and prevention of chronic migraines.
To treat the patient’s chronic migraines, a series of Botox injections are administered in the head and neck by one of our certified professionals at A-P Medical Group. The process includes thirty-one injections across seven different areas of the head and neck. Typically, these injections are effective during a period of up to 12 weeks.
According to the FDA, Botox injections will not be effective in treating the symptoms of headaches in patients who suffer from less than fourteen days of migraines per month.
As for the side effects of Botox injections, patients have reported reactions such as headaches and neck pain.
