How Headaches Are Treated
During your visit to Lawrence Family Practice Center, your practitioner will learn about your health history, medications, and symptoms. Sometimes additional lab tests are done to help determine the cause of your headaches. You and your doctor will work together to come up with a personalized treatment plan to help alleviate headaches, which may include prescription headache medications. If you suffer from chronic migraines at least 15 days out of the month, you may be a good candidate for in-office BOTOX® injections. Your doctor will use a fine needle to inject the BOTOX wrinkle relaxer formula into the affected areas of your forehead, which blocks the pain signals in your brain. To provide the most possible relief, the injections are usually performed about once every three months.
Take Control of Headaches
While headaches can often be alleviated with over-the-counter medications, more severe instances of headaches may require professional medical treatment. The trusted physicians at Lawrence Family Practice Center are experts in headache management and can offer an accurate diagnosis and appropriate solutions, including BOTOX injections.
