Therapeutic Injectables – Migraine Treatment
Do you suffer from migraine headaches? Therapeutic Botox has become a common treatment for migraine headaches as an add-on or replacement for traditional oral medications. Botox is injected into very specific areas to the face, head, neck, and shoulders to minimize the negative feedback of pain to the brain when a migraine happens. This often will result in fewer and less intense migraine headaches.
