Migraines and Headaches

A Migraine is a chronic disorder characterized by recurrent, severe headaches which affects more than 10% of people worldwide. The underlying cause of migraines is unknown but they are believed to be related to a combination of environmental and genetic factors. They run in families in about two-thirds of cases, and rarely occur due to a single genetic defect. Depending on the individual, the severity of the pain, duration of the headache, and frequency of attacks is variable.

Usually these headaches are unilateral (on one side of the head), throbbing, and moderate to severe in intensity. Migraines are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, light- and sound sensitivity, visual disturbances, fatigue and irritability. Migraines may be induced by triggers, such as stress, hunger, fatigue or hormonal fluctuations. The strength and significance of these relationships are uncertain. A trigger may occur up to 24 hours prior to the onset of symptoms. Muscle relaxing injectable® has been found to successfully treat chronic migraines. *

Treatment Options

Muscle relaxing injectable®

The treatment involves the injection of Muscle relaxing injectable® (or a similar neuromodulator such as Disport®) into specific muscles with a very fine needle, which relaxes the contraction response of the muscles by blocking certain nerve impulses temporarily. Since the muscles cannot contract, the wrinkles associated with that soften, and become less visible. Results are usually seen in about 4 days with maximum effects around 14 days, and will last up to 3-6 months. * Repeat treatment will be required to maintain the effect, but with subsequent treatments, wrinkles permanently become less severe, it has been found.
