If you have the frequent, severe headache condition known as “chronic migraine,” your neurologist or pain management physician at The NeuroMedical Center may want you to try injections of BOTOX® in your head and neck. The injections can help stop or prevent headache pain.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX is a brand name for a protein called “botulinum toxin.” When injected in small doses, this protein is very good at blocking nerve signals. It can block the nerve signals that are linked to some headaches. When these are blocked, you won’t feel a migraine.
During the BOTOX® procedure, your pain management physician, who experienced in injection techniques, will give you a series of 31 injections. They go in specific spots in your head and neck where the treatment can make its full impact. The fine needle is very small and injections are into shallow muscles of the head and neck (just beneath the skin.) The injections are not painful and feel like tiny pinpricks. The entire injection procedure takes about fifteen minutes and you can go home right after.
