Botox Therapy for Chronic Migrain
Botox (botulinum toxin type A) injections have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of chronic migraines. Botox injections work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause migraines, thereby reducing the frequency and severity of headaches.
The procedure is usually administered by a healthcare professional, who will inject small amounts of Botox into specific muscles in the head, neck and shoulders. The injections are usually done every 12 weeks and the effects of the injection usually last for about 3 months.
The treatment is considered effective for people who suffer from chronic migraines (15 or more headaches per month) and it is not recommended for those who suffer from episodic migraines (less than 15 headaches per month).
It's important to note that Botox injections may not work for everyone and that some people may experience side effects, such as pain or discomfort at the injection site, headaches or flu-like symptoms. It's important to discuss the potential benefits and risks of Botox injections with your healthcare provider before starting the treatment.
