Headache & Migraine Program
If you spend several days a month suffering from debilitating headaches or migraines, you probably have a chronic condition. When headache pain is part of your everyday life, it can have serious consequences. You may be losing time at work, with a resulting cut in pay. You may be forced to cancel your plans unexpectedly and end up spending a lot of time in bed and in the dark.
At Core Medical Center, we have an arsenal of treatments designed to treat the source of your headaches or migraines. We start with a comprehensive assessment to determine the cause of your symptoms and how best to treat it. We even look at the curvature of your spine – specifically at your neck and upper back areas – to see if a spinal issue may be contributing to the problem.
Headache Program Treatments
We typically combine several modalities to best treat you, which may include one or more of the following:
- Tendon sheath and bursa injections
- Nerve blocks
- Botox injections
Note: we follow the FDA-approved protocol for Botox treatment of chronic migraines. This procedure has been shown to reduce the frequency and severity of headaches by 80% after just two treatments and requires treatment every 12 weeks.
Botox for Chronic Migraines
Botox injections can prevent up to nine headache days each month, and Botox is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to prevent and alleviate chronic headaches. Studies show that patients typically experience a noticeable difference after their second treatment. Treatment results can be further enhanced when done in conjunction with an appropriate physiotherapy program.
Botox injections are safe and effective nonsurgical treatment that can be quickly administered in our office in just a few minutes. No daily medications are necessary. Our professional, friendly staff is licensed and certified in providing targeted Botox neuromodulator injections for migraine pain relief.
