Botox for Migraines
Neurotransmitters are chemicals that carry pain signals from your brain to areas of your head and neck causing migraines . Botox acts as a roadblock in that pathway. It stops the chemicals before they get to the nerve endings around your head and neck lessening or resolving the pain and effects of migraine headaches. Typically individuals need 3 or more treatments spaced 12 weeks apart to achieve maximum benefit.
Many insurance companies will cover the costs of your Botox injections for migraines. Check with the doctor for details.
