Botox has been shown to help chronic migraine headache suffers
A recent study published in the April 2014 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association reveals that people suffering from migraine headaches may receive benefit to receiving botulinum toxin A injections, or it’s branded name, Botox Cosmetic.
The FDA has approved Botox for the preventive treatment for chronic migraine suffers.
The researchers indicated:
Tension-type migraine headaches are common in a large portion of the population. Roughly forty-two percent of adults experience tension-type migraine headaches during their lifetime, unfortunately, most people do not seek medical help, but choose to self medicate with over the counter medicines.
Worldwide, migraine headaches account for between 8 to 19% of all headache related suffering, which are accounted for a greater disability of those that suffer from them. National statistics indicate that migraine headaches are responsible for over one billion dollars in medical costs and sixteen billion in lost productivity per year, just in the United States alone.
