Wrinkle Reducing techniques may be used as an effective treatment for chronic migraines. Botulinum toxins, the same injectables used by cosmetic surgeons, can be applied to the head and neck areas by licensed physicians to treat migraines. This treatment is an appropriate therapy for individuals over 18 who encounter over 15 migraine episodes in a month’s time.
Studies suggest that Botulinum toxin based medications disrupt pain signals between the brain and nerves. Neurotransmitters, the pain causing chemicals that incite migraines are blocked by the medication when injected into the muscle in the head, neck and face regions. The interception typically transpires at the intersection of muscles and neurons.
Clinical studies point to positive results with using botulinum toxin to treat migraines. However, in addition to Botulinum toxin therapy a lifestyle change can be helpful as well. Your eligibility or timing for the therapy is based on the history of your migraines as well as the frequency.
Although neurologists have different treatments for consistent and unyielding migraines, the most effective treatment is contingent on the individual.
There are clinical studies outlining the helpfulness of botulinum toxin therapy to treat unrelenting migraines. These treatment options along with lifestyle changes including complementary medicines may be encouraged. The ideal candidate for botulinum toxin therapy suffers with continuous migraines and under the general advice of neurologists will be adaptable to various forms of multi-treatment. This approach has been credited to positive results by decreasing the severity and frequency of the headaches.
There are multiple areas where Botulinum toxin is injected to mitigate migraine pain. Usual injections sites include multiple areas in the head and neck regions (temple, forehead, face and neck). They are given using a tiny needle, inserted into the muscles under the skin.
The doctor may inject trigger sites, which are locations directly where the migraine related discomfort began. If a patient is experiencing persistent migraines, individualized treatment options may be required taking into consideration each patient's morphology and pain origin sites.
If you are pregnant or nursing, botulinum toxin injectables should be avoided.
It is vital that botulinum toxin injectables are always administered by a well qualified healthcare professional in an effort to avoid any adverse reactions.
