Diagnosis and Treatment of Migraines
Each year, more than 45 million Americans suffer from chronic, severe headaches, including approximately 28 million who suffer from migraines. Medical science has identified more than 150 diagnostic categories for headaches, making an appropriate diagnosis critical to successful treatment. Once properly diagnosed, chronic headaches such as migraine or cluster headaches often respond well to treatment. Headaches resulting from secondary causes require prompt and accurate diagnosis so that the underlying cause can be treated. Our comprehensive diagnostic neuro-imaging capabilities and treatments may include CT, MRI as well as infusion therapy.
We treat patients with chronic debilitating headaches and conduct research on promising headache treatments. Along with approved drug therapies, we offer assistance including education, relaxation techniques, biofeedback, and stress management.
BOTOX for Migraines
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is the first FDA-approved (2010) preventive treatment for adults who have Chronic Migraines. A Chronic Migraine means you have both a history of migraine headaches and headaches on most days of the month (15 or more). Unlike acute treatments, which are taken to treat a headache or migraine once it’s already begun, BOTOX® prevents migraines and headaches before they even start. BOTOX® prevents on average 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month (vs 6 to 7 for placebo).
Is BOTOX® safe?
BOTOX®is a neurotoxin that can cause a reaction if ingested in spoiled food. It is safe for headache treatments because is isn’t ingested in your stomach and the dose is much smaller than you would get eating spoiled food.
