Chemodenervation

It’s difficult to live with chronic headache pain. If you have frequent pain that keeps you from accomplishing your daily tasks, it’s important seek an evaluation.  One of the few well-studied treatments for chronic migraine is chemodenervation with the use of botulinum toxin.  This is a relatively simple outpatient procedure in which your doctor injects a medication, such as Botox®, in multiple sites around the head in a welld-defined pattern which has been shown with multiple studies to be effective in reducing headache frequency.  This has now been done for over a decade and has been demonstrated to reduce frequency, decrease disability and have a limited amount of interactions with other medications that may be used.

Botox® treatments are temporary, so you may need additional injections in the future if your pain persists.
