Relief for Chronic Migraine
Chronic migraine is defined as having fifteen or more headache days each month with headaches lasting four or more hours each day. Traditional strategies for treating migraine headaches include a variety of medications and lifestyle changes that include the avoidance of headache triggers, getting adequate sleep and managing stress.
Henry Ford Allegiance Neurology also offers Botox®, a prescription medicine approved by the Food and Drug Administration to prevent headaches in adults 18 and older with chronic migraine. Botox has been shown to be life changing, with some patients reporting fewer headaches for up to three months after just one treatment.
When administered regularly to chronic migraine patients, Botox may result in up to nine fewer headache days per month.
During Botox treatments, the neurologist uses very fine needles to inject the medication directly into the affected head and neck muscles. Many insurance plans, including Medicare, cover Botox treatments for certain conditions. Check with your insurance provider to learn if this treatment is covered by your health plan.
