Botox Injections for Chronic Migraine Headache
Dr. Rachel Dalthorp is a certified injector of Botox for the treatment of migraine headache. Botox injections are very effective in decreasing the number of migraine days a month, are well tolerated and provided in a quick office visit every three months. 3.3 million Americans experience chronic migraine. Chronic Migraine means living with 15 or more headache and migraine days per month. That's different than living with them every once in a while- or episodic migraine. Chronic Migraine has an enormous effect on quality of life and is associated with difficulty maintaining employment, participating in activities and a higher incidence of depression and anxiety.
Botox is a preventative treatment for Chronic Migraine. It works to prevent headaches and migraines before they even start. Botox prevents an average of 8-9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month. Botox is the #1 prescribed branded Chronic Migraine treatment.
Most insurance plans cover the cost of treatment. However, some patients with commercial insurance may have to pay out of pocket. That’s where the BOTOX® Savings Program comes in. The BOTOX® Savings Program was created to help commercially insured patients with these out-of-pocket costs not covered by insurance.
