Botox for chronic migraine
If you suffer from debilitating chronic migraine, you may be a candidate for BOTOX therapy. Chronic migraine is defined as a condition in which people have a migraine more than 15 days per month, lasting more than four hours each day.
Botox therapy is an FDA-approved therapy that has been shown to help patients achieve a reduction of 8-9 headaches each month. Instead of treating the symptoms, it works to help prevent migraine headaches in the first place.
Initial treatment involves two series of shallow injections in the head and neck muscles, 12 weeks apart, that take approximately 15 minutes. Patients may begin noticing an improvement after 4 weeks. After 24 weeks, the patient re-evaluated and treatment may be repeated every 12 weeks. The procedure is covered by many insurance plans and side effects are minimal.
