We are pleased to offer therapeutic Botox injections for the treatment of TMD, tension headaches and migraines. TMD and migraines are often linked, as the muscles in the head and neck all work in balance.
Migraines and Tension Headaches pain relief
BOTOX® has been approved by the FDA to treat chronic migraine headaches in adults. Migraine headaches are painful, debilitating disorders that greatly affect family, work, and social life. Treatment is the only chance for pain relief. Dr. Alex Tang is trained in the administration of Botox injections as part of pain management treatment. BOTOX® is one of many treatment options available to individuals with chronic migraines. However, Botox may be a better option if you do not tolerate migraine medication well. Botox affects muscles by decreasing the intensity of muscle contractions. It doesn’t mean that your muscles won’t function. It just relaxes the muscles enough to prevent extreme contractions, which can cause pain.
TMD Pain Relief
Botox relieves TMD by relaxing the muscles of the head and neck. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMD by preventing the powerful, often unconscious movement of the jaw that produces headaches and pain.
BOTOX® treatment for TMD disorders is usually quick, straightforward, and effective. Only the muscle areas injected with Botox will be relaxed. Botox treatment for TMD therapy will not affect muscles anywhere else in your body.
