Considerable Relief for 80% of Migraine Patients

October 20, 2011

oct20migraine[1]You may have heard the rumor that Botox is wonderful for headaches. It’s true. Botox can help most people who have frequent and/or disabling headaches, including muscle tension headaches and migraines.

For people with chronic muscle tension headaches, Botox injections will weaken the muscles that spasm and cause the pain. With the muscles treated, the spasms no longer occur and the headaches are significantly minimized or averted all together.

As for migraines, most are “complex”- meaning they are part vascular, and the vascular component triggers muscle spasms in the head. Botox goes straight to the muscle, limiting its use and hence reducing or eliminating spasms. The result is either significantly diminished intensity and frequency of migraines, or elimination of migraines all together. In Dr. Cadoux’s personal experience he has found it highly effective in about 80% of the migraine patients he has treated.

We all deserve a little relief sometimes. If you have chronic headaches, you deserve more than a little.  As always, our staff is happy to answer any questions you have about how we may be able to help you relieve your pain.
