Head and neck pain can take a severe toll on your life, especially if it’s constant. Headaches, migraines, neck pain, myofascial pain, and trigger points all over the body can lead to chronic pain, limited range of motion, and make it tricky to get through the day.

What is Botox for head and neck pain?

While BOTOX is often used to combat fine lines and wrinkles, it can also be safely used to treat pain in the head, neck and across the body. BOTOX is a brand name for a compound that contains a purified chemical called botulinum toxin and comes from bacteria. It has the ability to freeze the function of your muscles, decrease your pain, and enhance your overall quality of life.

Reasons for Botox for head & neck pain

BOTOX can be used to relieve several uncomfortable conditions in the head and neck, including:

● Headaches and migraines: If you have migraines and other headaches, you may be a good fit for botulinum toxin for migraines, especially if you haven’t found relief through medications or other migraine treatments.

● Neck pain: BOTOX may be a viable treatment option if you’re dealing with neck pain that won’t seem to go away with other traditional measures like rest and pain medications and you’d like to avoid surgery.

● Myofascial/referred pain: Dr. Samadian and his team of experts will use advanced diagnosis techniques to determine if BOTOX is a good option for you after completing a meticulous examination of all the muscular complexes that are accountable for the symptoms.

● Trigger points: If you are coping with trigger points and have not found success with other methods such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, massage, or steroid injections, trigger point therapy with BOTOX may be suggested by Dr. Amin Samadian which can greatly relieve they symptoms.
