A breakthrough in treatment for Migraines could be the miracle you’ve been waiting for!
One of the most heartening developments in migraine treatment is the discovery that neurotoxin injections can be added to the list of treatments for migraine patients. Chronic migraine is defined as headaches occurring on 15 or more days each month, at least half of which have the features of a migraine. If you’ve tried everything else to no avail, talk to our treatment team to see if neurotoxin treatment right is for you.
How it Works
The short answer: we don’t fully know. However, neurotoxin injections are thought to work by blocking the release of certain brain chemicals including acetylcholine and by blocking nerves that send pain messages to the brain as well as relaxing muscles so they are less sensitive to pain.
Treatment & Results
Those migraine suffers who respond to neurotoxin treatment have varied results. Some feel reasonably better quickly and have fewer headaches, while others find their migraine symptoms completely go way. Only patients with chronic migraine are eligible for treatment with neurotoxin injections. Since there are other treatments available to patients with chronic migraines, it is important that patients have an informed discussion of options for treatment with a practitioner experienced in the diagnosis and management of migraine headaches before a decision to use neurotoxin injections is taken.
Neurotoxin injections have known side effects. They affect a small percentage and most are minor and fleeting, others are rare and more serious. Any treatment plan should first include learning about side effects.
Migraine sufferers, this may finally be the solution that works for you!
