Migraine treatment in St Albans, Waurn Ponds, and Colac
Wrinkle-reducing treatments that use botulinum toxin injectables may also be used to treat chronic migraines. Researchers are eager to learn how botulinum toxin-based drugs help relieve migraine pain. Evidence suggests that the drug interrupts the pathway of pain transmission between the brain (central nervous system) and nerves that extend from the spinal cord.
When you have a migraine, your body releases substances called neurotransmitters and molecules that are associated with pain. Botulinum toxin interferes with the transmission of these substances, typically where the nerves and muscles meet. Researchers think that when the drug is injected into the muscles around the face, head and neck, it is taken up by the nerves and interferes with pain-associated neurotransmission.
It may take four weeks or more after migraine treatment before you see a reduction in the frequency of your migraines, and more than one set of injections may be needed. Migraine treatments and procedures can be done at our clinics in Colac, St Albans, and Waurn Ponds.
