Botox can work wonders for chronic migraine sufferers

Botox isn’t just restricted to treat wrinkles. More than 10 percent of the world’s population endures migraine headaches, and they can seek alleviation with Botox treatment

Chronic migraines, involve 15 headache days in a month or more, can be exceptional weakening. For such conditions Botox is the treatment offering life-changing relief, proving, Botox isn’t just for cosmetic purpose any further

“It’s worth trying for people who are having a hard time living with pain,” said Dr Zaki Anwer, MD, at The Pain Management Institute, “Some patients have no other choice.”

Stephen Robert is a chronic migraine sufferer, his headaches are extremely weakening. I was stuck in bed for weeks and was unable to work, I lost jobs because of my severe agonizing and was not able to enjoy quality time with my children when they were toddlers; told Dr Zaki Anwer

He endeavored with a host of medications, but nothing comforted him until he came to visit The Pain Management Institute, Dr. Zaki Anwer, MD. He treated him with Botox and his life was exceptionally changed. “The results are incredible” Dr. Zaki Said

He explained that Botox works on migraines by paralyzing the muscles for the time being. When people have migraines or suffer headaches specifically the covering of the skull, get irritated or inflamed. Additionally, the muscles shrink in the sense and they pull on the scalp, giving rise to pain symptoms “With Botox, what it’s geared to do is alleviate that and help in terms of relaxing those muscles,” said Dr Zaki

Dr Zaki carries out the Botox with very fine needles on the forehead, in the temples and back of the head as well as across the shoulders. Patients can have injection after the intervals of three months

The Botox for a significant number of patients have, have changed their lives and returned them what I believe is a key to spending quality of life, said Dr Zaki Anwer

“I have an entirely different perspective on life now, I’m up. I have now more quality time to spend with my children, I am efficiently working, and don’t miss days from work any more” said  Roberts

As for risks Dr Zaki Anwer explained

Dr Zaki Anwer says he is mostly comfortable with Botox procedures. Even if the toxin spread between the nerve cells, its very rare that may bring complications far from the injected site

“Complications are rare and when they occur typically involve the local spread of the toxin to cause paralysis of unintended targets, for example, eyelid drooping,” he said.

“To make it less scary, all toxins have a limited life,” said Dr. Zaki. “For most patients, regardless of how Botox is used, it will eventually be destroyed by the body.”
