Working together, you and Dr. Nini can construct a customized plan for preventing and treating your migraines to give you back control of your life.
Botox for Migraine Headaches in Los Angeles
One of the most effective treatments for chronic migraine headaches is Botox® injections. Widely used as the most popular cosmetic treatment for anti-aging aesthetics, Botox injections are FDA approved for treating chronic migraines. Dr. Nini may prescribe periodic Botox injections to control your migraines as part of your overall treatment plan.
The botulinum toxin in Botox blocks nerve signals from the brain to muscles that have been targeted for injection. This prevents the muscles from contracting in response to stimuli from the brain. By placing Botox injections in strategic locations around your head and neck, nerve signals that cause migraine headaches are prevented from occurring.
Botox injections can prevent migraine headaches for about three months when another series of injections will be needed to provide relief. This treatment is a non-invasive, yet effective, means of controlling chronic migraine headaches. Other therapies may also be recommended. Call or schedule a consultation at Full Range Spine & Ortho to discover how we can help you find relief from migraine headaches.
The most appropriate treatments for you will depend on the cause, nature, and severity of your migraine headaches.
