Treatment for Chronic Migraines
Don’t live an unpredictable life. Migraines do not have to interfere
with your plans!
New York Spine and Wellness Center uses Botox to treat chronic migraines.
If you meet specific requirements, Botox can be injected every 3 months.
You may see improvement in just a few days and a significant change in
your headache pattern. Oral medications for migraine prevention and abortive
agents, if necessary, are continued as these are considered complementary
to Botox treatments in the management of chronic migraine.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox does not get into the blood circulation nor does it go to the brain.
It works to deactivate the nerve endings in the muscles in your scalp,
thereby blocking the pain of a migraine. The process is usually not very
painful and the entire process takes under 10 minutes to complete. Most
people only feel minimal discomfort during the injection. There are usually
no immediate unpleasant side effects and minimal restrictions after the
procedure. Most patients are able to return to work or other activities
immediately after their injections.
