Headache & Migraine Treatment

Headache & Migraine Treatment

Although occasional headaches are an unpleasant part of everyone’s life from time to time, suffering with them on a regular basis should not be. If you are experiencing frequent headaches, it is advisable to seek out a professional opinion to determine whether there is an underlying problem, such as:

  • Blood vessel, muscle, or nerve disorder
  • Concussion/injury to the head or neck
  • Dehydration
  • Overuse of alcohol or prescription medications
  • Structural abnormalities of the head, neck, or spine

Migraines differ from ordinary headaches in that they are a neurological condition and may manifest with nausea, light sensitivity, and compromised balance. Migraine headaches can also be significantly more painful and even debilitating, and often turn into a lifelong recurrence for those who suffer, particularly women. They may be triggered by the following:

  • Alcohol, caffeine, or dairy
  • Dehydration
  • Hormonal changes
  • Low blood glucose
  • Overexertion
  • Poor posture
  • Medication
  • Strong smells
  • Tension in the shoulders and/or neck

At Total Health, we offer headache and/or migraine solutions and treatment after thoroughly evaluating your lifestyle, diet, and environment to determine the triggers of your pain and discomfort. From there, we will work with you to create a personalized course of the most natural and least invasive therapies, which may include SphenoCath® (a treatment that offers both immediate and long-term relief by targeting nerve tissue) and one or more of the following services:

Botox for Chronic Migraines

Botox does not only enhance one’s appearance but has been proven to treat chronic migraines for almost 10 years, and most insurances cover it!

3.3 million US adults have chronic migraines. Chronic migraines are not just your average headache or “episodic migraine,” they are an intense head pain that some may not realize are occurring way too often than they should. When they are this bad, they are actually classified as a disease.

How does Botox help migraines?

Migraine symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to lights, sounds, and smells can be cured by receiving one quick 15-minute Botox treatment every 3 months. Botox is injected into pain fibers that are present during headaches. Botox will enter the nerve endings at the site of injection and then block the chemicals that cause you pain. The blockage prevents activation of pain networks in the brain.

Injection locations for migraines:

  • Between and over your eyebrows
  • Top of your forehead and/or hairline
  • Sides of the head above your ears
  • Back of your head
  • On your shoulders

Botox is the first FDA approved preventative treatment for chronic migraines. It has been treating other therapeutic conditions for years and is the #1 prescribed branded treatment for Chronic Migraine

We are proud to offer this 15-minute treatment that can change lives forever. If for some reason your insurance does not cover this treatment, Botox provides a payment plan that can help you save up to $1500 per treatment.

If you have been dealing with this disease for way too long now, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions and our team will work with you to see if this service is right for you.

If you are experiencing frequent headaches or suffering with debilitating migraine pain, please make an appointment with a member of the Total Health team.
