Botox for headaches.

Botox isn’t just to keep you from frowning. Botox can help your headaches.
During a Botox migraine treatment, doctors make an injection into the forehead, neck, and shoulders where patients are experiencing pain and tension. The botulism toxin is thought to eliminate migraines by reducing muscle tension and thus creating less strain on the nervous system. Not only can decreasing stress on the nervous system prevent migraines from developing, headaches that do occur are often less severe because Botox purportedly blocks pain receptors in nerve cells.
