Injections for Chronic Migraines
BOTOX® injections have been approved for treating chronic migraine anwoman with migraine pain looking at computerd headaches. These severe headaches are defined as 15 headaches a month, most lasting more than four hours.
Most headaches involve some degree of muscle tension or spasm. By injecting these proteins into specific muscle groups, called trigger point injections, our Aesthetic Registered Nurse Injector, Matt Mehrassa, can effectively treat a number of neuromuscular conditions, including chronic migraine.
How headache treatment with injections works
BOTOX® is injected into several muscle groups in the face and head, relaxing those muscles. Trigger point injections are administered in the neck and upper back in order to relax tight muscle knots in these areas.
The combination of targeted injections can significantly reduce headache, neck pain and associated muscle spasm and tension. These procedures are simple, safe, and effective. The goal of treatment is to reduce the frequency and severity of headaches, reduce dependence on other medications, and improve quality of life.
This migraine treatment is a private procedure in BC. Private medication insurance may assist your treatment cost.
