When you suffer from migraines or migraine-type headaches, it can feel like a huge vise is gripping your head and neck applying an immense amount of pressure that just won’t let up. Many of our patients suffer this excruciating pain several days a week, and whether this happens to you every week or just a few times a year, there’s a good chance that Botox could help eliminate a major portion of your suffering. You see, there are many aspects to migraine and headache pain. One major player in the pain is your muscles. You have very strong muscles surrounding your head, face and neck, and sometimes these muscles malfunction and start to cramp up almost like a painful Charlie horse, and when this happens, the muscles can’t release. This results in excruciating pressure and tension. That pain can cause your other senses to go haywire to the point that any noise or light becomes unbearable. The pain can even make you physically sick. How can Botox help? Botox binds to these cramping muscles and causes the muscle fibers to release the contraction and therefore release the tension. The Botox protein binds to the muscle fibers and stays bound until the protein is inactive, which takes an average of about three to four months. The result is that your muscles behave normally during that time, and you live without the vise grips surrounding your head and neck. We routinely help our patients reduce and eliminate migraines and headaches. Some of our patients are now headache free after decades of suffering. They suddenly get much more enjoyment in life, and it’s a pleasure for us to play a part in that. Even if your migraines or headaches are more complex and involve more than just your muscles, Botox can eliminate the portion of your pain that comes from these muscles and might offer you some relief from your suffering. To find out if your migraines or headaches may be helped by Botox, call us to schedule a consultation, and we look forward to meeting you soon.
