BOTOX® injections are widely popular to combat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; however, people are now using the injections to significantly reduce chronic pain. This minimally invasive treatment is a great option for people suffering from a wide range of ailments.
Taken from the botulinum toxin, BOTOX is a purified protein that helps relax overactive and painful muscles, and multiple studies have shown that BOTOX is a versatile, and effective treatment for chronic pain.
BOTOX injections typically contain a mixture of botulinum toxin and saline solution or local anesthetic. Between five and 10 injections in multiple areas may be used to successfully relax tense muscles. Our practitioners will use a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into the area in need of treatment.
The FDA approved the use of BOTOX over a decade ago, and our office continues to use this treatment as a powerful pain management tool.
BOTOX can be used to treat the following:
◦ Migraine headaches
◦ Myofascial pain
◦ Back pain
◦ Neck pain
