HOW TREATMENT IS DELIVERED FOR MIGRAINES WITH BOTOX
Learn how Botox is being used for headache pain at Peak Health and Wellness.
The team at Peak Health and Wellness are board certified pain management experts and anesthesiologists who are highly qualified to deliver Botox treatments. After a careful assessment, your physician will inject the Botox into the shallow muscles causing the patient’s headache or migraine. In fact, there are 31 injections sites in 7 key areas of the head and neck that can give patients three months without pain. Best practice is to have repeating treatments every 12 weeks before you start feeling the pain to avoid the onset of a migraine due to delayed treatment.
Differences in Migraines and Headaches
There are a variety of differences between headaches and migraines including the pain, symptoms, and triggers for the attacks. Headaches are common to 70% of the world’s population with about 15% having migraines that last a few hours to days.
A simple headache often comes with no advance notice, but migraine sufferers report a “warning” which is auditory, visual, physiological, or psychological as a result of the changing neurological effects its has on the brain. Triggers for both headaches and migraines vary from patient to patient and generally a person who suffers from 15 headaches a month has learned to identify possible causes.
Stress, anxiety, poor posture, smells, squinting, poor light, dehydration, hunger, tiredness, hormonal changes, excessive sugar intake, alcohol and others have been linked to frequent episodes. During an attack, a tension headache would feel the head pain and other symptoms “normal” to that patient’s experience.
By contrast, a migraine sufferer has a heightened level of pain over a simple headache, and patients report it is so sweeping that they cannot perform everyday tasks, sleep, or even relax. The symptoms of migraine sufferers extend beyond what’s happening in the head.
