Botox® has been proven useful for reducing pain associated with chronic migraines. Migraines are a severe type of headache that disrupts normal daily activities. In addition to headaches, patients may experience the following symptoms:
- Extreme sensitivity to light
Chronic migraines are defined as migraines that occur 14 to 15 times each month.
When Is Botox® for Migraine and Pain Management Recommended?
Botox® is recommended for patients who have not been successful in managing their migraines with other treatments. The treatment was FDA approved in 2010 and works by numbing the muscles that cause migraines, thus reducing pain and other effects associated with the condition. Botox® is only recommended for patients with chronic migraines and is not a suitable treatment for headaches caused by other conditions.
How Is Botox® for Migraine and Pain Management Administered?
Botox® for migraine and pain management involves 31 injections at seven specific locations around your neck and head. The number and location of injections maximizes the disbursement of Botox® to reduce pain and discomfort associated with migraines. Post-procedure side effects are rare and temporary, but may include the following:
- Neck pain
- Mild headache
- Double vision
What Are the Benefits of Botox® for Migraine and Pain Management?
The most welcome benefit of having Botox® treatments for headaches is relief from pain. Botox® relieves migraine pain by relaxing the muscles in the face and head. An additional benefit is that Botox® has fewer side effects associated with its use than other traditional headache medications and may even play a role in blocking pain signals from reaching the brain.
