Migraine-therapy using Botox

by Stephan Gehle

Botox can relieve migraine symptoms

Botox helps not only in the treatment of wrinkles on the face. It can also be used in the therapy of migraine. Originally, Botox treatment came from the therapy of spastic muscles. For spastic muscle, whether after strokes or other neurological diseases, Botox can reduce muscle tension and make life easier for these patients. Its use in cosmetic medicine came later.

Migraine therapy with Botox has been tested in large studies. Here, good successes have been shown. Many patients can significantly reduce the number of days of discomfort and the consumption of painkillers. Together with physical measures, such as exercise and checking posture and sleeping position, a change in diet and the right medication, Botox can supplement migraine therapy after careful neurological diagnosis.

Here, after analyzing the trigger points, Botox units are placed in the affected muscles. This often leads to a reduction in pain and the consumption of painkillers. We are happy to discuss migraine therapy with Botox together. Some insurance companies even cover the therapy after application.
