Botox therapy for Migraines

Migraines can be extremely debilitating for sufferers but since 2010 Botulinum Toxin A (Botox) has been licensed specifically for the treatment of chronic migraines. Chronic migraine is defined as sufferers experiencing headaches on more than 15 days per month, half of which are migraines. Botox is usually injected into 30 areas in the head and neck using a cosmetic needle and the procedure is extremely simple and minimally invasive. Botox can significantly reduce both the intensity and frequency of migraine attacks.
